The Allen House, located on North Main Street in Monticello, Arkansas, was
designed and built by architect Sylvester Hotchkiss for Joe Lee Allen and his family
in 1906. The occupants were Joe Lee Allen, his wife, Caddye, and his children, Ladelle,
Lonnie Lee, and Lewie. Joe Lee Allen died in 1917. Years later in December of
1948, Ladelle Allen Bonner attempted suicide in the south wing bedroom, by
drinking mercury cyanide. Her attempt was deemed successful with the
celebration of the New Year, 1949.
Ladell Allen Bonner, the daughter of prosperous Monticello businessman Joe Lee Allen, was born into the kind of wealth and privilege that included having a town named in her honor.
