Some houses really do just get worn out. Like humans. There is just no way to make them live longer. That's the case with this 611 West Pleasure house on the corner of Pleasure and Pecan Streets and just across the street from the location of the popular-at-one-time Gentry's Grocery.
It has been bought and is being readied for the big bash that will take it away forever. It had a tarped roof and I am sure that the inside was in bad shape. But it still deserves one final tribute on this blog.
There are houses like it still in Searcy. It was probably a popular building style in 1925 when folks used the porch for actual sitting and waving to the neighbors as they walked by. I wonder if it was a two-room house that was eventually added on and added on to make it larger.
Whatever.....Searcy grows and we are proud of that. Just say goodbye to another part of our history.
