The Carlton House is a historic house located at 434 South Lakeshore Drive in Lake Village, Arkansas.

Description and history[edit]

The two-story, Colonial Revival style house was designed by local architect Albert G. Simms and constructed in 1906. The central facade has a large central projection with a gabled roof. This section is fronted by a porch with a low pitch hip roof, which continues around the sides of the projection, and is supported by simple Colonial Revival columns. The projecting section's gable end hangs over a recessed second floor porch area that has a low railing, that also has a flush polygonal bay section that is continued on the first floor, where the main entrance is located. The house is one of a small number of surviving Colonial Revival houses from an era when Lake Village was developed as a resort area.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on June 5, 1991.[1]
