Rosa Current Home
413 Baylor Street
The arts and crafts style rock house was built around 1930 and was once the home of Rosa Current whose father was a Confederate soldier and then a farmer. She is buried in Old City Greenwood Cemetery. It was also owned by Ona and Loena Campbell. Ona Campbell was the daughter of Floyd and Mae Campbell. The house has many patterns that are part of the rockwork including a star, heart and even a fish on the chimney. Petrified wood is used as material in the house itself and in the fence surrounding the house. Many houses built during the depression era used found and available materials.
While the origins of the house continue to be researched, it was called the fairy house by children in the neighborhood because many of the rocks would glitter when light would hit them. The current owner bought the house in 2001.
