Backstory and Context
The Rushton Clinic is a historic medical office at 219 North Washington Street in Magnolia, Arkansas, that is still in use today. Built in 1938, The Rushton Clinic is an excellent, local example of Art Moderne style. It is a single-story structure, roughly U-shaped. The walls are buff brick and stone or cast concrete coping and glass blocks are used for accent on the corners and around the door. It was built for Dr. Joe Rushton, who had recently graduated from medical school and sought to establish a practice in the city. He practiced out of this building until his death in 1983. Dr. Frank Selman, son-in-law of Dr. Joe Rushton, currently has his optometry practice in the clinic.
The building was listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 2013 for its architecture.
