PIKE COUNTY ARKANSAS

Diamonds were first discovered here in 1906 and over 75,000 diamonds have been unearthed at the Crater of Diamonds State Park, located two miles southeast of Murfreesboro. This area became a state park in 1972. Amethyst, garnet, jasper, agate, and quartz are among the stones found here.

The county was formed on November 1, 1833 and named for explorer, Zebulon Pike, who discovered Pike's Peak in Colorado.

Murfreesboro is the county seat. The 2000 population of the county was 11,303.
