Eaker Site(3MS105) is an archaeological site on Eaker Air Force Base near Blytheville, Arkansas that was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1996.[2][3]

The site is the largest and most intact Late Mississippian Nodena Phase village site within the Central Mississippi Valley.[4] It also shows evidence of Quapaw occupation.

Like many Mississippian culture settlements, it is located on the bank of a river, the Pemiscot Bayou. Pemiscot Bayou is located in the St. Francis Basin of the Mississippi Valley. The Eaker site is large but has no known mound, although it is rumored to have once had one.[5]
