The Hopkins House in Marion

I was reading entries about the Edgewood Plantation and the evident marvelous renovation that it has undergone.

It immediately turned me to thinking about my own ancestral home in Union Parish.

Does anybody know what is happening to the old Hopkins House in Marion?
My forebears, the Powell family, were born in this home.

My cousin, Alice F. Farrar, the granddaugher of Mary Alice Hopkins (daughter of Alice Ione Powell Hopkins) was living there and kept the place up when I first visited Marion and I stayed with her for several days.

Then she married, left and rented it out.

Three or four years ago I was there in Ruston visiting Alice and we went out to Marion and visited the tenants ago and the place wasn't being terribly well cared for.

Recently Alice passed away and now I am worried.

Please tell me anything that you folks in the Marion area are able to share.

For those who knew or knew of Ellis (E.T.) Powell, he was my great uncle.

Friendly Regards,
