The German prisoner-of-war (POW) camp in Lake Village (Chicot County) closed. At its height, the camp housed more than 300 German enlisted men, most of whom were considered Nazi sympathizers. Lake Village is located in the extreme southeastern part of the state. While Lake Village is the smallest incorporated town, by square miles, in Chicot County, it has served as the county seat since 1857. The hub of commercial activity for the county, Lake Village prides itself on its rich agricultural background.
