More About The Heights
The Heights is part of "The Pulaski Heights" development that includes Hillcrest and the Heights. Pulaski Heights was incorporated in 1903 and annexed to Little Rock in 1916. Both areas have developed their own personalities since the early days. The street that runs through both suburbs, Kavanaugh, was named for the founder of the Little Rock Baseball Association.
The areas were so-named because the upper portion of the area is "The Heights" and the lower portion is "Hillcrest."
