Antebellum plantation house - good restoration, literally on the edge of the Mississippi River right across from Greenville. A little remote - off the main road, but easily accessible. Built in the 1850's. But really not a lot of 'there, there.' The house is big...More

Thank you for visiting Lakeport. We appreciate your compliments on our "good explanation" of history and "good restoration." However, it is not clear from your comments that you actually toured the house and we are confused by your critical emphasis on the house's surroundings. Lakeport...More

Sorry we missed you Robert. The herringbone pattern brick walkway does recreate the original. Most of the walkway was covered with dirt in grass when restoration started. Archaeologists uncovered and documented the remaining bricks. These old bricks are very fragile and would not hold up...More
