  • Century-old home moved for homestead project at SAU

    Southern Arkansas University was the recipient of a state grant from Arkansas Natural and Cultural Resources Council totaling $150,000 to transform the historic Ozmer House. The restoration of the house and grounds will create a working farmstead in the heart of campus.

    Along with the grant, the Ozmer family contributed $40,000 to meet the total project cost of $190,000.

    The house was built circa 1883 and is on the National Register of Historic Places. According to University Archives, alumnus W. Derrell Rogers donated the house to SAU in 1986. Its original location was near the intersection of highways 82 and 79, but it was relocated to the eastern boundary of the SAU farm. Last November, the house was carefully moved to a new site facing Washington Street between Childs Hall and the Agriculture Center where refurbishing work has already begun. (more…)
