Orval Faubus. Westinghouse started to establish an electric light bulb plant on the site in 1953, but abandoned the project. The firm gave the property to the state in late 1953. Rock said . that the property would be advertised over a 30-day period in the Wall Street Journal and in state papers. Proceeds of the sale will be used to make loans to local Industrial development corporations. The 1955 Legislature granted the commission authority to dispose of the property. It was appraised by a special committee appointed by Faubus. The figure established by the committee has not been disclosed.
