I like the riverfront! This home was built in 1945. It is located on 6.8 acres in Siloam Springs, Arkansas. This waterfront home is situated along the Illinois River. The home was moved to its current location which was original in the Lake Francis Resort. There is a large front porch and the home cannot be seen from the road. There is knotty pine walls and ceilings in two rooms. I bet there are hardwood floors underneath the carpeting. The home could use some updating.

From the Zillow listing:


Nostaglic, Historic, Waterfront Home with 6.8 acres of level ground on the Illinois River in Benton County Arkansas approximately 3.5 miles South of town. The property is gated, monitored and locked. The home dates back to the LAKE FRANCIS RESORT and was moved to its current location. The history of this property dates back to 1877 when the US gov’t hired John McGhee to survey the trail of tears to determine how much land was taken from the Cherokee Indians. The home CANNOT be seen from the road.
