Plantation Agricultural Museum

Plantation Agricultural Museum

Exhibits and programs at the Plantation Agricultural Museum interpret the history of cotton agriculture in Arkansas from statehood in 1836 through World War II when agricultural practices quickly became mechanized. Visit the Dortch Gin Exhibit Building in order to learn how cotton was ginned. The museum gives visitors a better idea of farming life during the Plantation Era.
