Oh, No! What's going on here? Margaret Pope Estate house undergoing changes?

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Advantage

Searcy's historic houses get gone, seems like, overnight.  I drove by this one two times on my way to work yesterday.  The first time there was a dump truck in the yard.  The second time the screened porch on the East side was gone. 

The house appears empty and the yard has been growing up.  It is called the Margaret Pope house, I believe, unless my historians correct me.  It's on a corner of Market Street just a few blocks from downtown Searcy Arkansas.  Several attempts have been made throughout the years to remodel it and save it. 

What is going on now?  Will it be like some of our other historic homes......gone overnight?  I took pictures just in case.  Here's one.

I also blogged about it and its four chimneys.  At least four, possibly more.  Go to that blog for more pictures of this house.

Ms. Barbara, will you please take control of your godson's new "habits"? I think only you can intervene.

Now Kate, with all those little ones crowding around you, you have to know how the little ones will "try" your patience.  Nutsy is just the same.  He's my beloved little godson and pushes a little from time to time.  I, however, don't let him get away with anything.  He'll get rid of that awful fruit habit rapidly now that he knows I don't like it.

Ms Barbara, my four granddaughters and five grandsons are not vampires.

Ms. Kate, my little godson is just as precious as your 9 little cupcakes.  If he were a vampire, he'd be a helpful one.  He'd take blood from one person and take it to the ailing one who needed a transfusion.  He's very talented.

Anyone who notices this blog....the house is still standing and they have put doorsteps at the front corner.  Perhaps they are restoring!
