Significance: The Allen Line School Teacher's House is a good example of a community's provision of housing near a rural school for a teacher, who was also expected to serve as custodian of the school building. It was built by neighboring farmers using a plan typical of tenant's houses and small farm houses in northeastern Mississippi during the first decades of the twentieth century.
