History

Charles Carroll.JPG

Carroll County, Arkansas from Izard County by a legislative act passed 1 Nov 1833. That act took effect on 25 Dec 1833, making the county Arkansas's 26th county.

Prior to that, part of what is currently Northwest Arkansas and Northeast Oklahoma became Lovely County. Lovely County, which was intended as a residence for Native Americans, was in operation from 1827 to 1828. The Lovely County Citizen, published today in Carroll County's Eureka Springs, is named for the earlier county. Lovely County derived its name from William and Persis Lovely, a white couple who lived among the Cherokee.

In Jan 1834, Carrollton became the county seat and remained so until 1875 or 1880 (sources differ), when Berryville took its place. Currently, the county has dual county seats, Berryville and Eureka Springs. King's River serves as the jurisdictional line between these two county seats, with Berryville serving as the primary seat.

The White River flows through Carroll County. The area contains some of the most mountainous portions of the Ozark Mountains. The county has been noted for its oak and hickory forests and, currently, for poultry and beef production.

Tourism is also a significant industry in Carroll County. This is largely because of Eureka Springs, known as "Little Switzerland." Eureka Springs is characterized by Victorian buildings clustered on steep mountain streets. The county's other county seat, Berryville, is home to the Saunders Museum. 

The county is named after Charles Carroll (1737-1832) of Maryland. He was the last surviving signer of the Declaration of Independence.[2] Carroll had died just the year before Carroll County was founded.
