About Lakeport Plantation
During harvest season, fields of white cotton still surround the Lakeport Plantation estate. Delicate white railings run the perimeter of the balcony out front, harkening back to the antebellum south in 1859, when the home was built. Inside and out, the house looks much like it did back then, exterior colors restored, original faux rosewood graining on doors, original crown molding, acid-etched-glass windows, and even a surviving 150-year-old floorcloth. Guests can soak up more insight to the period via the salvaged historical artifacts and descriptive panels placed throughout the space.
This period home, restored by Arkansas State University, goes beyond showing how finely the master of the house lived, though. Visitors will also be able to explore the darker side of plantation life, learning about the relationship between the family who lived in the big house and the slaves, and later, tenant farmers who worked the land.
