The Evans-Neuhart Home has architectural, local significance in Plainview, Arkansas as an example of a Folk Victorian residence built between 1914 and 1916. The expansion of the railroad to Plainview enabled the spread ofNational Folk style houses; this style with the addition ofVictorian-influenced accents created the Folk Victorian traits exhibited in this house.' The L-shaped porch is a result of the combination of the side-gabled and front-gabled roofline, standard subtypes typical of the Folk Victorian style. The basic frame of the house is customary (National) Folk design with Queen-Anne inspired turned post spindles on the L-shaped porch defining its Victorian character. Similar houses in the area have been destroyed by fire or obsolescence, or have been altered with vinyl or metal siding. A few houses in the area have a -hip- roof or -bungalow- built by the Fort Smith Lumber Company of Plainview. However, this style ofhouse is unique to the area, and as a result, it's being nominated to the National Register of Historic Places with local significance under Criterion C.
