A Roof Over Their Heads : Dyess Colony Houses
Five-Room, Style E, Colony Home
One of eight styles for the five-room houses designed by Little Rock architect Howard Eichenbaum and built in the Dyess Colony. The federal government built 206 of the five-room sizes, using the eight styles to vary floorplans and exterior facades.
E-5 House at the bottom right was used for elementary school classes until a school could be built. Photos from the National Archives, Records of the Works Projects Administration.
