S1081772600601 S1081772600602 S1081772600603
Facade Right Elevation Left Oblique

The Arthur Burroughs House is significant as a fine and late example of Queen Anne-influenced architecture. It is the best such example in Conway, and is significant as well for its association with Arthur M. Burroughs, prominent local businessman. The house was built by contractor Henry P. Little, ca. 1903-1904 for $2800 and was occupied soon after Burroughs’ marriage to Frances G. Coles in November 1904. The two-story, asymmetrical plan frame residence is sheathed in shiplap siding and has a gabled-on-hip roof with two-story projecting pedimented bays. A two-story octagonal tower with turret, with bell-cast roof, is at the east corner of the house. A one-story hipped-roof porch wraps the fašade and right elevations. Arthur M. Burroughs was the son of Franklin G. Burroughs, cofounder of the Burroughs and Collins Company, and was successful in his own right in the local timber industry. Burroughs was killed in August 1912 in an accident at the Southern Wood Products Company, when a resin-processing tank exploded. Listed in the National Register August 5, 1986.
