Did you know that the George Austin McHenry House in McHenry is the only property in Stone County on the National Register of Historic Places? The older  photo in this post shows the house in the early 1900s. Standing in front of the house with “Ponnie” as he was known by his grandchildren are his wife Una and son Floyd.

The House was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1988 thanks to the efforts of Dolores McHenry Mauldin. Hannah Mauldin Cliburn (great-grand-daughter of George Austin McHenry) today lives in the house with her husband Joe.
