This house is located on a working farm! There are four 100 year old sharecropper homes. We also have two new homes designed in a similar style. 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 1700s and early 1800s. 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 accommodates a spectacular pedestrian and bicycle crossing 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 two hundred yards from the house, and is being restored.

This particular house was completely restored in 2017 and has 2 bedrooms and one bath. There are three window unit A/C's, (one in each bedroom) and heaters in each room. The Unit in the living area is both a heater and A/C. The full kitchen has dishwasher, gas stove, refrigerator/freezer. This house is located at the south end of a row of 6 restored farmhouses, on a private, gated road near the headquarters of this beautiful 500 acre farm. We produce rice, corn, soybeans, wheat as well as some speciality crops-heirloom corn for grits and cornmeal, kale, turnips, pumpkins and gourds for the local markets.

Our houses are safe and quiet--a very convenient and close retreat from the hustle and bustle of downtown Memphis. They are all fully furnished
