In the early 1900s, Gustav Stickley began publication of his influential magazine The Craftsman. The magazine was devoted entirely to the construction and interior design of the Arts & Crafts movement. Stickley was an architect himself, as well as a furniture-maker. He was also an ardent proponent of the Arts & Crafts philosophy that advocated for a revolt against the presumed evils of the Industrial Revolution – mass-produced, shoddy goods – and a return to handcraftsmanship. Working with architect Harvey Ellis, Stickley designed 221 house plans which he published in The Craftsman.
Before World War II, the Craftsman was one of the most popular styles of housing. Most Craftsman homes are smaller cottages, often referred to as bungalows, with a small front porch. However, in the Southeast, these large-scaled Craftsman dwellings are quite rare.

Well, at least it doesn’t look like vandals have hit the place a spray-painted it.
I would assume the property is owned by the state or county/parish now.
The scythe in the wall, of the upstairs bedroom is a nice touch.
Love seeing these, thank you for photographing and posting!
Does anyone know where the “Farmhouse” is located? Love to look it up.
what happens with these homes and furniture property that’s left behind , does the home get auctioned off and if it does who do you inquire about it.
Contact the county court clerk
It makes me ill to see such beautiful homes going to waste. They need to be picked up by the local Historical Society and brought back to life.
