You are driving into Searcy from Hwy 36 West and you can take Pleasure Street or Beebe Capps Expressway. Choose W Pleasure Street and you'll promptly see this lovely ranch house.
It has been meticulously maintained since it was built in 1960. And it was built with wood....lots of wood. Wood floors, wood walls, wood ceilings. Wood that came from Doniphan Mills. It has as much class and beauty as any of the original ranch style homes in Searcy Arkansas. It should be put on some kind of protective pedestal.
BUT......there was a hearing this week to try to get it zoned from residential to commercial and the house would be torn down to make a commercial building! I can possibly see putting an office in the house but I can't see tearing it down and starting over.
Neighbors showed up to protest. I watched and protested silently. Decisions were delayed for two months and then will be considered again.
So drive by and get ready to possibly say goodbye to another treasure or join those neighbors and try to get it saved.
