Half a house becomes no house. 407 E Vine Searcy AR

Half house Searcy AR Vine St gone

Another house gone.

I wasn't surprised when I drove by this house a few days ago and saw that it was being taken down.  It has been in bad condition for a long time.....probably not livable.  But it was the subject of a blog or two because of its rumored history.  The address is 407 E Vine and it was once a part of the house on the West side of it (410 N Oak) thus I called it half a house.

The bigger part of the house is in beautiful condition and when they were originally  combined the two were located facing Race Street on the corner of N Oak and E Race.  They were moved back so that a newer house could be built.  It is still there and is called The Watkins House.

Here is the way it looked earlier.  The courthouse said it was built in 1915.  The other part of it was built in 1890 says the courthouse.  Now we may never know for sure but the idea is rather fascinating.  The Watkins House is still on the corner and still lovely.

I think it is about time for the bungalow to reappear.  We have been doing craftsman-style homes for so long I am ready for a change.  Sorry, you lost one in your neighborhood, sometimes restoring is harder than just starting over.

Gwen, I am not crazy about craftsman style myself.

Barbara, hard to see homes being torn down, but maybe a new beautiful one will take its place.
