Mabelvale was a small, unincorporated train station town in southwestern Pulaski County, Arkansas, until being annexed into Little Rock in the late 1970s or early 1980s. The area today is part of Little Rock’s seventh ward while retaining a separate postal designation and ZIP code from most of the rest of the city. The neighborhood is currently represented on Little Rock’s City Board of Directors by Brenda "B.J." Wyrick.
The neighborhood is generally defined as the homes and businesses in the immediate area surrounding the intersection of Mabelvale Main Street and the Union Pacific railroad line. Its location on the south-central fringe of Little Rock proper — as well as proximity to unincorporated communities, neighborhoods in Southwest Little Rock and adjoining towns such as Shannon Hills which share the ZIP code — often leads to varying definitions of Mabelvale’s boundaries.
Most major community services are linked with the various government departments of the City of Little Rock. The city’s street department maintains all streets in incorporated Mabelvale, notably Mabelvale Main Street, Mabelvale Cut-Off and Mabelvale West Road — three of the neighborhood’s busier paths. Little Rock Fire Station #18, which provides fire protection for the area, is located on Mabelvale West Road. Police service is covered by the Little Rock Police Department’s Southwest substation on Baseline Road. Public transportation is provided by bus service on the Central Arkansas Transit Authority’s Route #17.
Three Little Rock School District campuses are located around the neighborhood, providing education from pre-kindergarten through the eighth grade. Mabelvale Elementary is located on Mabelvale Cut Off, across the street from Morehart Park, and has served the area since opening in 1980. Across the neighborhood is Mabelvale Magnet Middle School on Mabelvale West Road near the post office. The middle school first opened in 1952 and joined the Little Rock district in 1987 to serve a large portion of southern neighborhoods throughout the city. Also in the area is Chicot Elementary, which serves students in pre-kindergarten through fifth grade.
Morehart Park, an attractive forty-three acres Little Rock municipal park, lies close to the historic heart of downtown Mabelvale, which still has about it the feel of a charmingly rustic and close-knit small town. Initial preparation for the park was conducted by the Arkansas Archeological Survey in 1978. Today, Morehart Park includes a pavilion; a disc golf course; tennis and basketball courts; a softball field; playground areas for children; and hiking and jogging paths. The Morehart Spring is the source of a brook which flows through a more heavily wooded eastern section of the park.
The park takes its name from the family of Amos Morehart and his wife Emma Harrison Morehart. Amos Morehart and his family first settled on what is now a portion of the parkland in 1890, thereafter regularly purchasing additional surrounding acreage over the years (most of which subsequently would also become part of the park). He operated on his property a berry, fruit, and vegetable farm; an apiary; a sawmill camp; and a tanyard, having purchased the license for the latter business from previous owners, who had already incorporated it under the name of the "Swamp Angel Tannery." A community leader who was active in civic affairs, for many years Amos Morehart served as a president and a member of the Board of Directors of the former Mabelvale Rural School District.
Amos Morehart’s father, Henry Morehart, had likewise been active in local Mabelvale community life: he was a leader of the agrarian insurgency and farmers’ third-party political rebellion of the late 1880s and ran for the state legislature in 1888 as a third-party candidate. Despite a theft of ballot boxes by his opponents, he and his running mates were eventually declared victorious and assumed their seats as Pulaski County state representatives in the Arkansas General Assembly on February 18, 1889. A number of descendants of both Amos and Henry Morehart still reside in the Mabelvale area.
The area commonly referred to as Mabelvale today spans multiple counties; while primarily located in Pulaski County, areas within it boundaries spill over into neighboring Saline County, Arkansas.
