Looking to find out who won Jeopardy! tonight? Today’s Jeopardy! results and will go up on this page late afternoon, with full stats early to late evening. They will be seen in the comments section at the bottom of this page.
The “little rock” upon which Little Rock, the state capital of Arkansas, was named, was originally on a river bed. When most of it was demolished in the late 19th century to build a railroad bridge, part of the rock was saved. When it was thought that the “little rock” might become a tourist site, it was moved in 1932 to its City Hall, as the river bed and railroad junction was feared to be less safe.
