The James F. Camp House in Aplin, Arkansas, is determined eligible for the National Register of Historic Places with local significance under Criterion C, for its Craftsman architecture. The Camp House is one of the few remarkable examples of Craftsman style in rural Aplin, Arkansas. The Camp House is the reflection of the transition occurring throughout the United States, from classical revival styles of architecture to a style emphasizing the worker's home. This style grew out of a desire to emulate a simpler time, [which] had been institutionalized by the Arts and Crafts movement in England, and it was winning converts in America.
