Justin Matthews, Sr. began Metropolitan Trust Company, predecessor to Metropolitan Realty & Development, LLC, in the 1920’s. He purchased large and small tracts of land in Pulaski County to create one of the largest land holdings in the county. Mr. Matthews was instrumental in the building of infrastructure in the area, including the bridge across the Arkansas River connecting Little Rock to North Little Rock.

One of his most recognizable achievements was the commission of the Old Mill in North Little Rock, famous for being in the opening scene of the movie Gone With The Wind. Metropolitan Realty & Development, LLC strives to carry on the traditions created by Mr. Matthews.
