Downtown business owners Jan Robinson and Wil Jenkins received a $1,000 Arkansas Heritage Preservation Grant, according to the Pine Bluff Downtown Development newsletter.


The grant will go toward the replacement of the glass windows for Robinson’s and Jenkins’ building at 301 Barraque St., formerly Owen’s Food Locker & Poultry.


Once a well-known butcher shop, the facility is being restored into a steakhouse with a rooftop deck overlooking Lake Saracen. Bar bara Ann Owen Hollis, whose father owned Owen’s for 45 years, presented the check.
