WELCOME TO JUDD HILL PLANTATION
Judd Hill Plantation began as a wedding gift from Judd Hill to his daughter, Mrs. Ester HHl Chapin, and her new husband, Sam Chapin. Originally, this area consisted of swamp and timberland along the very fertile St. Francis River Basin. As the land was cleared and drained, the Chapins created one of the largest, contiguous farms in Poinsett County. Combining row crops with a cattle operation, Judd Hill Plantation quickly became one of the premiere farms in Northeast Arkansas.
At one time, 68 families lived and worked on the plantation. They were born here, went to a one room school, attended church and many are buried at the Judd Hill Cemetery, which is still maintained today. Judd Hill was the quintessential Southern Cotton Plantation. READ MORE
