A Roof Over Their Heads : Dyess Colony Houses
Three-Room, Style C-5, 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.
Built-in corner cabinets in the dining room were a feature of many of the colony homes. Photos from the National Archives, Records of the Works Projects Administration.
