311 W Center Searcy queen Anne Victorian P A Roberson home

While looking through old saved clippings, I came across this one.  And it is a good example of irresponsible clipping and record keeping by me.  I failed to put the date of the clipping.  It does say that the house was 78 years old and this was to be very close to the end of the lovely P. A. Robertson home at either 311 West Center or 309 West Center.  The newspaper put two different addresses for the home  It described the home as one of the finest and best preserved examples of Queen Anne Victorian architecture in the state and it was on the Registry of Historic Homes.

Searcy lost another beauty with the elimination of this home but I am glad that we had photography to keep it in our memories.

Morning Barbara.

What a pity, it looks great, just a sign of the times.

Hello Barbara - at least you saved the clipping although this home's fate was not so fortunate.

Yes, James.  Keeping the photographs of these homes is good.

Michael, I agree.  Our newspaper is getting smaller all the time so clippings are not as prevalent any more.
