Fayetteville in Washington County, Arkansas — The American South (West South Central)
The Stone House
This house was built in 1845 by Judge David Walker. He sold it in 1850 to Stephen K. Stone, whose family lived here during and after the Civil War. A solid shot from Fagan’s Confederate Battery on October 3, 1864 pierced the west wall of the house. The Stone House survived the war, as did the Rieff house directly across the street and both are still standing in 1965. Stephen K. Stone and his wife, Amanda Brodie Stone, were public-spirited citizens and made handsome donations to such causes as City Hospital, Methodist Church and the Fayetteville Female Seminary. The Stones’ daughter Mary (Mrs. George Albright) was the last graduate of the Seminary in 1860.
Erected 1965 by Washington County Historical Society.
