Parker Homestead 2016

Parker Homestead is located in Poinsett County, Arkansas. Every fall there is a festival portraying life "in the good old days" in rural Arkansas.

The old homestead has added buildings from the area. There is a post office, church, several businesses and homes to tour. Demonstrations are ongoing and items for sale as well as a variety of food vendors.
