SCOTT, Ark. — THV11’s Adam Bledsoe and Theba Lolley made their way to Scott, Ark. to learn about the Plantation Agriculture Museum State Park.
A unique fact about this location is the fact it’s a museum and an Arkansas State Park. The park staff welcomes visitors with a wealth of knowledge and helps guests enjoy their visit.
Guests are sure to discover how cotton was grown and harvested in the early 19th century as they walk through the interactive museum. From static displays to carts of cotton, young and old will enjoy walking through a timeline of historical facts.
Cotton has been such a vital crop in Arkansas which was explained to Adam through the tour by park interpreters. The tour took Adam through the general store originally build in 1912, the Dortch Gin exhibit containing a cotton gin, and finally a walk-through Seed Warehouse #5, National Register of Historic Places.
The tour was like a walk back in time and is very well arranged for an educational experience. The museum is a popular destination for school trips for hands-on learning. Guided tours are available for a fee and can be arranged by contacting the museum.
