The Lakeport Plantation house, built in 1859, is the only remaining Arkansas antebellum plantation home on the Mississippi River. The Greek Revival structure is one of Arkansas’s premiere historic structures. Added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1974, the home was gifted to Arkansas State University by the Sam Epstein Angel family in 2001. After five years of restoration work, the home opened to the public.
The restoration of the Lakeport Plantation house into a museum and public historic site has been funded through grants from the Arkansas Natural and Cultural Resources Council, National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Save America’s Treasures program.
