Lake Village Commerical Historic District - 108 Main Street, Lake Village AR



Additional Event Details

Lake Village grew up along the western shore of Lake Chicot, the largest natural oxbow lake in the U.S. Like most towns in the Mississippi River Delta, Lake Village residents engaged in cotton farming and the harvesting of hardwood timber. The Lake Village economy also benefited from recreational opportunities on nearby Lake Chicot. Furthermore, the arrival of the Memphis, Helena and Louisiana Railroad in 1903 aided commercial development. Lake Village remains a popular tourist destination in southeast Arkansas, and its historic commercial buildings reflect the town's prosperity. The tour group will meet in front of the Chicot County Courthouse at 108 Main St. Co-sponsored by Lakeport Plantation and the Chamber of Commerce.
