Look at the curves on this house! East Market beauty Searcy Arkansas.

By

You've got your own route to your destination?  Right?  So have I.  I drive down East Market Street near Harding University everyday.  Each day I compare the lovely old houses on the North side vs. the apartments and changes on the South side.

I especially like this house.  The court house says it was built in 1945.

East Market house

It has more curves than a fashion model!  Over the windows, over the doors, and even the roof line curves.  It appears to be a delightful mixture of brick, rock and stucco. 

But for the past few days as I drive by the door is open.  Did a renter move out?  Will the door not work?  Is it about to be demolished?  What's the story?  I'm hoping my reporter friend, Luke, can solve this mystery.  He says the house is on the Historic Register so perhaps he can educate us on this too.

AND

Searcy Sleuths, who used to live here?

Anita, here's the house that your friend occupied.  The little eyebrow is just a little cute addition unless you were in the attic and saw that it served a purpose.

thank you for photo'ing Judy's house.  I have had so many good times in that house, too many to even think about.  Now that you caught it so well on film, I can see two little curved thingees.  That was Judy's bedroom on the right (looking at the picture) - that's how she could lie in bed and watch/listen to the Hoffmans, sitting at their kitchen table, next door.

Anita, what was the little curved thingee on the left (looking at the picture)?   The one taken down had the little thingees too.  See below.

Barbara, I have no clue as to the purpose/function of those little curved thingees.  Just decoration?  You're the expert about things like that....but now that we've started looking and mentioning them, AMAZING that there were more in Searcy.  Love that you went back to the last razed house.  I'm going to start looking for them at houses when I go places.
