Hidden in a "holler" along a sheltered creek bottom is a time capsule that transports the visitor to another era. We are so grateful for the precious landowner who allowed us to experience this special place...a living snapshot of Izard County's past. One of the fringe benefits of doing what we do is getting to meet such wonderful people...both property owners and readers.
You'll notice the house is built very much like the Wolf House in Norfork. It is pre-civil war, though it has not been officially dated. Although the outside of the structure is covered with weather-boarding, the original structure is hand-hewn square logs. You'll also notice the Smokehouse, the Cattle Barn, the Mule Barn (log construction), and the Springhouse (built with massive hewn blocks of stone).
We hope you enjoy these photographs of the Arnold Homeplace! This site is one that deserves to have its restoration/preservation vigorously pursued.
