Tour America

Over the next two weeks, the “Tour America’s Treasures” blogs cover six “Save America’s Treasures” sites in Arkansas. First on the list is Lakeport Plantation, located just outside Lake Village. Lakeport is the last remaining antebellum house on the Mississippi River in Arkansas that hasn’t been extensively altered. Thanks to Arkansas State University, this treasure has been restored and is open to the public. 

Read Lee Price’s blog about this gorgeous piece of architecture and surrounding grounds on the Tour America Treasures blog page. You’ll learn plenty about this piece of American and Arkansas history; so much so, you’ll start planning a visit.


While you’re in that part of the state, stop at Lake Chicot State Park, situated on the shores of Lake Chicot. It offers fully equipped cabins, fishing dock, bicycle, boat and party barge rentals, special programs and tours, plus Civil War history.  Terrific shopping is available at the Paul Michael Company, Nonie’s Antiques and others. When you get hungry, check out Rhoda’s Famous Hot Tamales, the Cow Pen Restaurant, the LakeShore Café and others
