Soldiers camped here before marching in for the Battle of Prairie Grove. This home is over 150 years old and is ready for restoration. Over 3,200 sf, new windows in most of the home, spacious bedrooms, large sunroom, 2 full baths, huge pantry, beautiful 2.97 acres, park-like setting with wonderful trees and extra wide front porch for rocking. Beautiful iron work on the stairway was done by a local blacksmith many years ago. The stone facade was meticulously completed by a local stone mason. Room for animals, a garden and a shop or barn. There are so many stories this home could tell and there is still life left to tell many more!
