Also interesting is the Matilda & Karl Pfeiffer Museum & Study Center, which features a 1930s home that was owned by Hemingway’s brother-in-law. It houses a gem and mineral collection with 1,500 specimens, a botanical garden, Native American artifacts and a library of more than 1,600 books. Scenes from the 1957 movie A Face in the Crowd were filmed on the property.
Housed in the original Bank of Piggott, circa 1925, The Inn at Piggott is a bed and breakfast. Joe and Tracy Cole renovated the historic building, which is located on the square within walking distance of restaurants and shops.
If you want something more secluded, try Rose Dale Farm Bed & Breakfast, located on 18 acres just down the road from the Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum. The 1917 restored bungalow has two bedrooms and an extra futon, so you have space and privacy. The kitchen is stocked with complimentary drinks, snacks and breakfast items.
Madpie’s Tea Room & Shoppes. This whimsical venue is a good lunch spot. The menu features sandwiches, salads, wraps and desserts. After you eat, stay to shop for everything including toys, clothing and candles.
Piggott City Market is a fantastic choice for breakfast or lunch. Grab a gourmet coffee, muffins, pastries or sweet breads or take home roasted or chocolate pecans and Arkansas honey. For lunch, try the Reuben or chicken salad. The owners source many ingredients locally.
