Our Rich History
Built for the ages
Built in 1949 by William Alston Cheek – a former Hollywood actor – Rivercliff was designed to be a secluded hideaway for many of the city’s elite. Resting on a mountainside plateau, it’s beautiful landscaping, Hollywood-style pool and unique design made it something special from the moment it opened for business. Today, Rivercliff is a haven for young professionals who yearn for something different than a typical apartment complex.
As you stroll around Rivercliff, you feel that history has been perfectly preserved. Solid concrete construction, and classic styling remain appealing to today’s renter. You can shoot a game of pool on a table that was played on by Jesse James, and make your home in rooms where some of Little Rock’s most important people once lived. Rivercliff remains a unique institution, offering modern living that has the feel of a simpler time.
