Searcy AR house different style Now gone

A different style for Searcy AR house, now gone.

This house at 1302 E. Race in Searcy AR has been taken down and I will miss it.  It was the only house in Searcy of this style.  Arches, a tower, and when it was built in 1934 it was probably considered "way out in the country."  The courthouse says it was 1460 sq. ft. of living space and that is where I found this picture.  When I drove by a day or so ago, it was being taken down.  I wish we had some history of its builder.  Searcy Sleuths?  I do know that it was Riley Real Estate for many years but who built that style house and why?

Looks like it had been converted into a Mexican restaurant.

Whats interesting to me is the lack of windows on the side. Maybe they were filled in for the restaurant.

Where'd you get this picture, Don?  Surely it was never a restaurant.
