|Facility:||Parker Pioneer Homestead|
|Description:||Parker Pioneer Homestead is a vast collection of buildings and artifacts from times past located in Poinsett County, Arkansas. Several artisans demonstrate old time crafts such as broom making on an 1878 patented broom making machine, quilting, wool-spinning, woodcarving, blacksmithing, horse shoeing, hay baling, and more. Take a wagon ride across the covered bridge on the original dirt road into Whitehall. Civil War Living History is also portrayed. Tour the grounds, visit the store, and have a sarsaparilla while you're enjoying the day!
Operated by Phil and Teressa Parker, the Homestead evolved from an interest in local Whitehall history and a desire to preserve some of the artifacts (mostly from the Whitehall area) for the enjoyment of others.
They have many things to see and do here at the Homestead. From giving school tours to hosting private family gatherings. One of everyone's favorite things is the Homestead Festival held each October.
