Lakeport Plantation is a historic antebellum plantation house near Lake Village, Arkansas and Greenville, Mississippi. Restored between 2003 and 2008, it is now a museum and Arkansas State University Heritage Site.
The mansion was built circa 1859  for Lycurgus Johnson. It was designed in the Greek Revival architectural style.  The plantation boomed as cotton prices increased until the end of the Civil War, which freed the slaves on whom the plantation economy depended, and devastated the South.
