An Imboden Live reader sent us this old photo taken in Imboden, Arkansas in the early 1900’s of a home destroyed by a tornado. He asked for our help in determining the year this might have happened. Here is the email and attatched photograph. If you have any information on this please leave a comment.

This house in Imboden was partially destroyed by a tornado. I am trying to determine the year. The owner, Mary Elizabeth Smith, remembered the year as 1927 but her recollection was many years afterward. Some of her children appearing in the picture appear to be young teenagers – putting the year around 1913. Can you help? Patrick Hydrick

Hopefully we can help solve this mystery for Mr. Hydrick and we thank him for his email, the photo and information he has shared

with our readers.
