Lake Norrell - Alexander, Arkansas - The Best Kept Secret

By
Real Estate Agent with Network Real Estate, Inc. PB00001682

  Lake Norrell, in Alexander, Arkansas is a 280 acre lake located just 40 minutes from Little Rock and has been a well kept secret, with the exception of a few avid water enthusiasts who frequent Lake Norrell to take advantage of boating, fishing, scuba diving and jet skiing.  Lake Norrell, located in Northern Saline County less than 3 miles from the Pulaski County line, has been for many years the emergency or back-up water supply for the City of Benton.   In fact, Lake Norrell is owned by the City of Benton.  Normally, when you mention Lake Norrell, most people in Central Arkansas never heard of it.

 Over the years Lake Norrell residents have enjoyed the quite solitude and serenity this beautiful lake had to offer.  Lake Norrell has been one of those places that is so remotely located, that you really had to have a reason to go there.  In 2005 a major paper company decided to sell some of their property bordering the lake and now much of it has already been sold to individuals or to developers who see the real potential of this remote area of Saline County.  New houses are beginning to "pop up" which will definitely have an impact on current and future property values.

  You know when you get to Lake Norrell because all of the roads have names like, Falcon Cove, Bluebird, Bream, Hummingbird and Bob White.  Over the years the population of Lake Norrell had included those that were weekenders, summer residents and several full time residents.  In viewing the shoreline, you will see everything from small weekend fishing cabins to residence that would be valued at well over $300,000. 

  There is no question that the popularity of Lake Norrell has mushroomed and values will continue to reflect tremendous demand over the next 2 to 10 years.  There are a lot of potential issues involved in purchasing or selling property at Lake Norrell and you'll be well advised to seek the expert advise of a company like Network Real Estate that sells the majority of the property at Lake Norrell.

As a child I also loved the lake and just last year I found it again fr my grand children to enjoy. From a young as I can remember the story was told that a great uncle who was a senator of Arkansas donated it to the city of Benton. But I cannot find any history on it.Can anyone help me find something? Thank you.

Lake Norrel is built over land that was once homesteaded. My grandfather Leonard Fuller homesteaded a place he farmed that is now covered in that water. I grew up in the Congo community not far away closer to Benton. My family (the Fullers) were pioneers of the Pleasant Hill Community that still has the historical Methodist Church / and cemetary at the bottom of a hill not far away from Lake Norrel. In all the years i have heard the pioneers there talk about that area, Ihave never heard of A Senator Of Arkansas being involved in that community or Lake Norrel. However, the lake is named for a Congressman who served in the US House of Representataives named Norrel. The lake is indeed named in his honor.He represented Arkansas in Congress at the time of John L. McClellan and Hattie Caraway whow were the senators. If Representatiave Norrel lived in that area if do not think so. My parents knew all of the aforementioned and grew up there. If he donated that land i think would heard it long before.
