Clarence A. Linebarger House

-A A +A
1925. 606 W. Central Ave.
  • (Arkansas Historic Preservation Program, A Division of the Department of Arkansas Heritage, Revis Edmonds, photographer)

Linebarger built this fashionable bungalow as his town house refuge from his summer cottage at nearby Bella Vista (see BN14), the resort founded and developed by the three Linebarger brothers in 1918. When vacationers took their traditional Labor Day departure from the resort, Linebarger moved back to this house and the preferred sociability of Central Avenue. This bungalow may have been the first on the street. The house and several nearby contemporaries display the familiar bungalow features: the integrated porte-cochere at the house’s side, bands of double-hung windows, and low-pitched gabled roofs with wide overhangs supported by shaped exposed rafters over deep porches.
