Series: We Just Called it "Home" #3
Vacant farmhouse along Brannon Mountain Road, SE Washington County AR.
This dignified old country lady is a fine example of "Ozark Vernacular Architecture" -- the structure shows signs of classic log cabin construction, with later upgrades and additions using wood-frame construction, asphalt composition siding, corrugated iron roofing and a west-facing French Door that gave the residents an outstanding view of countless sunsets from the home's ridge-top location.
A few well-concealed brilliant yellow jonquils can be found at the base of the right-most tree. A common sight during early springtime in the Ozarks, these hardy flowers can be found during drives across the back roads or walks through the woods as the last visible evidence of a home site.
When you see them in those places, it's worth taking a moment to stop, look around and realize "Somebody used to live here; somebody cared enough to plant flowers in this place."
