The Rockpile

Harris Armstrong's weekend cabin in DeSoto, Missouri. The upper level contained a large fireplace and beds. The lower level (sometimes prone to flooding) contained a very basic kitchen. Armstrong built is himself during World War II, when there wasn't much construction acitivity. Unfortunately, it burned down in 1972, just one year before Armstrong's death.
