Lakeport Legacies with Blake Wintory and La Rhonda Mangrum — Images of Chicot County: A book project
Lakeport Plantation is starting work on a pictorial history of Chicot County with Arcadia Publishing, known for its iconic Images in America series. Chicot County has a long history rooted in agriculture, business and the communities that sprung up along the Mississippi River, grand oxbow lakes and railroads. Come see and remember the history of Chicot County through the images we are discovering. You can also help the project. We are seeking pictures of community events, businesses, historic structures, and people. Send an email or call if you have something.
Lakeport Legacies (LL) meets in the Dining Room of the Lakeport Plantation house. Lakeport Legacies is a monthly history talk held on one of the last Thursdays in the spring and summer months. The event is free and open to the public. Refreshments and conversation at 5:30 p.m. Program at 6:00 p.m.
