Real estate can be trying. Real estate can be fun. But real estate is never boring! Daughter Valerie Canepa and I had to go to Jacksonport Arkansas to check on a property. I had never heard of Jacksonport and neither had she. We found it just on the other side of Newport Arkansas. (Jacksonport served as an important steamboat stop and trading center at the confluence of the White River and Black River, until being bypassed by the Iron Mountain and Southern Railroad shortly after becoming county seat, according to Wikipedia.)
Today, it is a city of about 212 folks and it is right beside Jacksonport State Park. Jacksonport State Park covers 164.7 acres and has 20 campsites, playgrounds, pavilions, a swimming beach and it is located along the White River. And best of all, it has this fantastic old historic courthouse because Jacksonport was the home of county government from 1872 to 1892.
Look at it! It is so impressive sitting there starkly with no landscaping just as if it was newly constructed.
And I found this exterior building quite interesting. Question? Are these outdoor facilities because there was no indoor plumbing? I have got to go back when I can take a tour of this great old building! And why are there three doors?
So our real estate journey led us to new adventures and places we'd never been! And we are eager to return to Jacksonport!
