Elmer Owens’ New House, 1921

From the February 24, 1921 Skidmore News (Skidmore, Missouri), page 1:

Has New 16-Room House.
Have you seen the new 16-room apartment house which J. I. Parish recently built for Elmer Owens? It will be taken to the farm complete, and ready for occupancy, but Mr. Owens does not intend to occupy it himself. He had it built for his tenants, B. Martin and family. It is of colonial design, painted white, trimmed in dark gray and has a red roof. If you haven’t seen this new house, just walk down to Manchester and Dodds store and look at it.
