Friends of Dreamland non-profit was formed in 2009 by Kerry McCoy and a group friends over a shared desire to perverse a little known aspect of Arkansas history. The Taborian Hall has sense been placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The Taborian Hall at 800 W. 9th St. has stood in downtown Little Rock for almost 100 years. Once a central fixture of religious expression, fraternal support, economic progress, and entertainment in the African-American community in the early 20th century, this beautiful old building now houses Arkansas Flag and Banner. On its third floor still stands the Dreamland Ballroom, beautifully preserved in an on-going restoration. FoDL non-profit exists to promote and oversee this restorative effort. And is committed to re-building a facet of the community that once permeated the W. 9th St. District through the history, music, and party of the Dreamland Ballroom!
