When first formed, Miller County was Arkansas's sixth county
Miller County was created as Arkansas' sixth county on April 1 1820 by the Territorial Legislature and included most of the current Miller County as well as most of what are now counties in Texas: Bowie, Red River, Lamar, Fannin, Cass, Morris, Titus, Franklin, Hopkins, Delta, and Hunt.
The county was abolished in 1838 and its remaining territory returned to Lafayette County.
It was recreated by the state General Assembly from the parts of Lafayette County lying west and south of the Red River in December 1874.
It was named for James Miller, the first Governor of Arkansas Territory.
Texarkana is the county seat.
The Red River forms the northern and western boundaries of the county.
