Nevada County

Nevada County is Arkansas's 63rd county, formed on March 20, 1871, and named after the state of Nevada because of the perceived similarity between their physical shapes; the Arkansas county's shape roughly follows the same outline as the state's boundary when inverted.
Apparently the county name is pronounced Nuh-VAY-duh

The County Seat and largest locality is Prescott
