Clark County

Clark County was formed in 1818. Its boundaries changed five times before reaching the present location in 1877. It was named for William Clark, governor of the Missouri Territory and partner on the Lewis and Clark expedition. The county seat is Arkadelphia. The landscape of the county is hilly terrain in the north, and rolling, pine-covered hills in the south. Agriculture, manufacturing, and tourism comprise the economic base. DeGray Lake and DeGray Lake State Park, in the northern part of the county, attract visitors from far and near and offer a wide variety of recreational activities. Two universities — Ouachita Baptist and Henderson Stat — are in Arkadelphia. The 19th-century courthouse, along with a large area of businesses and dwellings, sustained heavy damage during a tornado on March 1, 1997. However, the county and courthouse have since been restored.
