The McWilliams House is being nominated to the National Register of Historic Places under Criterion C with local significance. As the oil boom hit south Arkansas during the 1920s, it brought new found wealth to the El Dorado area, which allowed residents, the Me Williamses included, to build new and elaborate homes in the latest architectural styles. It is nominated as an excellent example of an eclectic style house, showing characteristics of the Craftsman, Classical Revival and Mediterranean Revival styles, all of which were popular styles in the 1920s.
