Not only a nice stop over for history, there is a great place to eat with Hub Cap hamburgers too.

After a friendly visit to the Plantation Agriculture Museum was a fascinating experience! I highly recommend that all Arkansans visit this most informative and well displayed museum that showcases the mule powered farms of yesteryear up until the present mechanization of today's agriculture plantations of the delta. Well worth the three dollars!

The Plantation Agriculture Museum offers a historical view of agriculture in the state of Arkansas by examining nearby plantations, share-cropping, and cotton processing. Outdoor exhibits include antique steam engines and tractors and a small plot of growing cotton. A reconstructed building contains an authentic cotton gin used on a nearby plantation.

Overall the museum was well planned and offers an insightful view of cotton production on the nearby plantations.
