History

Isaac Burgett was an early settler and planter. At the time of his death in 1865, Burgett was the oldest citizen in Crittenden County. Otto Seyppel, born in Germany in 1854, took over the plantation. The Seyppel Plantation is today called "Allen Farm".

A post office was established in 1888.

Rogers Cemetery is located north of Seyppel, and Walnut Grove Church and school—historic but still standing—is located west of the community.

James Cotton was known to have performed at a juke joint once located in Seyppel, and blues guitarist Hubert Sumlin accidentally fell though its window one evening while watching Howlin' Wolf perform.
