Hoofman home searcy ar historic photo Race St

Recognize this home?  This photo was in the 1936 White County Centennial Edition of The Daily Citizen and White County Citizen.  It is a large 16 page edition with various pictures and it was given to me by my friend, Letain DeVore.  This picture was on a two-page spread entitled A FEW OF THE MANY ATTRACTIVE HOMES THROUGHOUT WHITE COUNTY.  Somehow this one looked familiar and it did turn out to be one that we see daily if we drive East Race St.  It is located at 1215 East Race and the view below shows it as it is today.  The tiny tree in the picture above now has a huge limb that shows in the picture. 

Interesting, isn't it!

Oh my! Is that a pond behind the house? Wonderful picture, Barbara.

Hello Barbara - I really enjoy how your Searcy AR posts bring forth comments from current residents along with those who fondly remember life from another time.  A visit to your posts is like a history lesson of sorts and because of the attention they draw enhance the appeal of the city life now and before.

Sheila, thanks for commenting.

Leah, I would not think there was a pond back there but it does look a little like one.

Michael, most comments are made on facebook when I share the blogs on it.  But wonderful activerain counts the ones who click on the blog and the clicks are many.

Don, thanks for that picture.  I used the side one so it would show the same view as the one in the old picture.  The front view is beautiful.

Morning Barbara.

I've driven through Searcy before.  Maybe next time, you can show my wife and I around.
