Feels Like Home

While researching a new photo project I fell in love with this little shotgun house in Little Rock. I had never seen it in person before but I felt strangely connected to the house by looking at pictures of the place online.

Home of Wendel and Magdalena Harveil in the 1920s.

A week later, I’m researching my 3rd great-grandparents and, low and behold, I see that their address looked awfully familiar. Sure enough, the little house I felt connected to is exactly where they lived in the 1920’s.

There are not many of these shotgun style houses, built between 1890 and 1920, left in Little Rock and Preserve Arkansas has listed them as the “Most Endangered Places” in Arkansas.
