Searcy's historic houses get gone, seems like, overnight. I drove by this one two times on my way to work yesterday. The first time there was a dump truck in the yard. The second time the screened porch on the East side was gone.
The house appears empty and the yard has been growing up. It is called the Margaret Pope house, I believe, unless my historians correct me. It's on a corner of Market Street just a few blocks from downtown Searcy Arkansas. Several attempts have been made throughout the years to remodel it and save it.
What is going on now? Will it be like some of our other historic homes......gone overnight? I took pictures just in case. Here's one.
I also blogged about it and its four chimneys. At least four, possibly more. Go to that blog for more pictures of this house.
