Randolph County’s History

Leaves

 

History has a bold, yet charming way of presenting itself to you in Randolph County. The Old Historic Randolph County Courthouse, built in 1872, is in the middle of a charming town square. The courthouse has been restored and is on the National Register of Historic Places. The very first post office for the Arkansas Territory was in Randolph County… and today the site of that building is marked for visitors of the Old Davidsonville State Park. They Maynard Pioneer Museum is a delightful look into the past, to a time when the people of the east ventured with astounding vigor into the unknown, the West!

The Good Earth Association at Kilo Visita site, Birdall, Arkansas, also helps us remember the hardships that were borne by those who farmed this rich area so many decades ago.

The east side of Randolph County is part of the Delta, known for rich, fertile farmland, and abundant rice, bean and grain fields. The west side of the county slowly rises toward the higher elevations and the breathtakingly beautiful Ozark Mountains. The county is the only one in the state that can boast of having five rivers within its boundaries. The fishing and canoeing are excellent. The Black, Current, Spring, Eleven Point and Fourche rivers capture nature’s wonder as avid water-lovers and sportsmen are drawn to their shores. Come enjoy a water adventure at one of our rivers.
