Guion, located on the east bank of the White River in Izard County, was home to some of the area’s first settlers and was once a center of area trade. On April 10, 1929, the town was hit by a deadly tornado that destroyed all but four of the town’s buildings, including this single residence. Forty people were injured and three were killed. For a time, many survivors lived in a tent city, with others finding refuge in local sand caves.
