The Daisy Bates House, in Little Rock, Arkansas, is significant for its use as a command post for those working to desegregrate the Little Rock Central High School during the desegregation crisis of 1957-1958, assisted by Daisy Bates. It was a sanctuary for the nine students involved.[3]

It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 2001.[2][3]
