An architectural survey of the Harry S. Truman Reservoir was conducted in Benton, Henry, Hickory, and St. Clair counties, southwestern Missouri. This area included nearly 500 intact rural sites and several small towns Brownington, Deepwater and Roscoe, as well as parts of larger towns Clinton and Osceola. Two hundred rural houses were recorded in the reservoir, most of them frame structures built between 1880 and 1920. A few early log structures survive, some of them incorporated into frame buldings or covered by siding. Many of them have been adapted to other uses. Eight varieties of barns, as well as bridges, root cellars, chicken coops, corn cribs, and fencing are included in this survey.
