Check out this view of the Philip Snyder farm from Little Round Top. This lonely little house was built in the early to mid 1830s and even has an outhouse (seen to the left of the house and a large tree). The white rectangular structure further to the left is the Arkansas State Monument which dates from 1966. The part of the woods seen behind the monument was the starting-point for the 3RD Arkansas Infantry.
