A Fayetteville house has been added to the National Register of Historic Places, it was announced Wednesday.

The Skillern House, located at 3470 E. Skillern Rd. in Fayetteville, was added to the register, which serves as the country’s official list of historically significant properties.

According to a press release issued by the Department of Arkansas Heritage, the home was built at the turn of the century in 1904-05 as “the residential center of an 800-acre farm in Washington County on the northeast corner of Fayetteville.”

The home is approximately 3,400 square feet and in the Folk Victorian Style with Queen Anne detailing, and was built by noteworthy farmer and landowner John Audley Skillern.

Several photos of the interior and exterior of the historic home are still available via the real estate website Zillow, though the home is no longer listed for sale.
