Markham Street is an east-west thoroughfare paralleling the Arkansas River in downtown Little Rock. In July 1999 part of the street, from its intesection with Main to the Clinton Library, was renamed President Clinton Avenue.
All east-west streets downtown are numbered, not named. It is not clear why Markham was given a proper name, nor is it clear where the namesake came from.
