Lakeport Plantation

The Lakeport Plantation dates to the 1830s. The vast plantation produced cotton for nearly a century. The plantation house was built in 1859 and today serves as a museum telling the story of the people and cultures that shaped plantation life in the Mississippi River Delta. The collection pays particular attention to the Antebellum, Civil War and Reconstruction periods. The museum is one of the best places in the country to learn about plantation life.
