Parker's Homestead is a
recreation of a 19th century village created by Phil Parker. It's
located in White Hall near Harrisburg, Arkansas. They have recreated
a blacksmith shop, a beautiful church, a schoolhouse, a post office, newspaper
shop, general store, livery, and other associated buildings and homes.
They hold a festival each year as well as tours for hundreds of local schoolchildren.
In 1998 they held their first reenactment at the Homestead. Some
members of the 1st Arkansas joined up with Wiggin's Artillery Battery and
the 7th Arkansas to put on the show. Going to Parker's Homestead
is always great fun.
