Ashdown, Arkansas - Box Car Apartments

This guy apparently got a great deal on some old box cars and turned them into apartments. There are about a dozen different colored box cars scattered about the property and all for rent or occupied.

[Phrank Phester, 12/01/2011]

If you admire novel housing solutions, then perhaps worth a drive-by. In 2011, 31 rail cars filled with coal derailed near Ashdown. But no one turned those into apartments....yet!

Box Car Apartments:
E State Hwy 32 about 15 miles east of Ashdown, near Millwood Lake.
