A Roof Over Their Heads : Dyess Colony Houses
Three-Room, Style C-3, Colony Home
One of seven styles for the three-room houses designed by Little Rock architect Howard Eichenbaum and built in the Dyess Colony. The federal government built 61 of the three-room sizes, using the seven styles to vary floorplans and exterior facades.
Colony homes had standard-issue fixtures, including the porcelain kitchen sink. Photos from the National Archives, Records of the Works Projects Administration.
