Casey House

-A A +A
c. 1920. 1211 E. Boswell St.
  • (Arkansas Historic Preservation Program, A Division of the Department of Arkansas Heritage)

The form of this house is sometimes termed an “airplane” house because of the reach of its winglike porch roofs. Several features in addition to its wings make it the most unusual bungalow in Batesville. These include its foundation and half columns of rusticated local sandstone, its Japonesque details typified by the “temple gate” trim in the porch gables and pagoda-styled second story, and its narrow clapboard siding above wide siding separated by a narrow stringcourse. Other more typical bungalow features are the knee braces, tapering wooden porch columns rising from masonry bases, the low-pitched roofline with deep overhangs, and the multipaned upper window sashes.
