Thanks Jean for the alert.
Thanks to Roger too for all your splendid activity in so many worthy causes and programs.
Would love to attend, but can't. Know others would enjoy a brief synopsis of the program after the event.
Please extend kudos to Joan Gould from this ARIzard subscriber. She may NOT be a local girl (Izardite), but we can adopt her!
Never heard of Arnold Springs Farmstead, but knew about Jacob Wolf House being on National Register of Historic Places. Maybe some day they will have website too.

heritage of the Ozarks. Since the 1980's, she has presented numerous
rural properties for nomination to the National Register of Historic
Places. For the past decade, she has devoted her full attention to
preservation projects including consultation for the restoration of the
Jacob Wolf House, constructed as Izard County's first courthouse; the
Early Arkansas Settlement Studies I and II; and restoration of two
territorial period log houses owned by Black River Technical College in
