Houses gone N Elm Searcy AR

I know, I know, it's progress.  But it is still rather surprising to drive around a street and find several houses missing.  Just gone, like overnight.  This view shows the corner of North Elm and West McRae Street in Searcy AR.  You can see apartments in the background and the parking spaces across from the football field on the right.  The little house that was in the corner is gone and this small rock house has been taken.  It definitely was in disrepair but it was once a charmer, I'm sure.

A little further around was this charming home that was the home of a very respected and loved family for many years.  The Morse Mallett family lived there.  It still looked  good when this picture was taken and these pictures came from court house data which does not get erased so quickly that we can often go and see how things "used to be."  The courthouse information says that Searcy Special School District is now the owner of the properties.  So definitely the move is to benefit our school district but if you'd like to drive by and reminisce you'd better hurry.   For memories you might want to review this blog of houses that were removed on East Market.
