History

Lovely County was a county that existed from October 31, 1827 to 1828 in the Arkansas Territory.

It included all or part of present-day Benton, Washington and Crawford Counties in Arkansas and all or part of Delaware, Mayes, Wagner, Cherokee, Adair, Sequoyah and Muskogee Counties of Oklahoma. [1]

Lovely County was created on October 13, 1827, from Crawford County and the Lovely Purchase. The Northwest portion of Arkansas was an important area of growth from 1827 when the territorial legislature created the county, which was much larger than Lovely's purchase. Lovely County included more of present day Oklahoma than present day Arkansas. The Oklahoma portion was lost to Arkansas in 1828 with the Cherokee Treaty of that year. Most of the remainder became Washington County on October 27, 1828, and the county officials were directed to "take over the affairs and moneys of Lovely County. [2]
