The space
This house is located on a working farm!
There are four 100 year old sharecropper homes, three of which are listed on Airbnb. We also have two new homes designed in a similar style listed on Airbnb. All are located on a private road facing the Mississippi river levee.

Mound City was named by the early settlers for the Indian mounds located on this property. It was an important river town for East - West trade during the late 1700's and 1800's. Mound City was burned by Federal troops in 1863, but remained an important trading town until the Harahan bridge was finished in 1892.

The Harahan Bridge now accomodates a spectacular pedestrian and bicycle crossing now connecting Arkansas and Tennessee, and is easily accessible from the house.

The old commissary at Mound City was featured as a honky tonk in scenes of the movie "Great Balls of Fire" featuring Dennis Quaid as Jerry Lee Lewis. It is located 200 yards from the house, and is being restored.
