Womble District Administration House No. 1

The Womble District Administration House No. 1 is a historic house in the Ouachita National Forest. It is located on the north side of United States Route 270, east of Mount Ida and just west of the highway's crossing of Williams Stream. It is a 1+12-story wood-frame structure, with a side-gable roof, novelty siding, and stone foundation. Its main facade, facing south, has a projecting gable-roofed porch, whose gable is finished in vertical board-and-batten siding. It was built about 1940 by a crew of the Civilian Conservation Corps as the administrative headquarters of the Womble District of the national forest.[2]
