Arkansas' 25th county, it was formed on November 1, 1833 out of Clark and Hempstead counties. It was named for explorer, Zebulon Pike, who discovered Pike's Peak in Colorado.
The first known residents of the area were the Native American tribes of Quapaw, Kadohadacho, and Cahinnio.
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. The world's only diamond-bearing site accessible to the public, this area became a state park in 1972.
Since the late 19th century, the county's main source of employment has been in the timber industry.
The 2000 population of the county was 11,303.
Murfreesboro is the county seat.
Until it was officially named, Murfreesboro had been referred to as "Forks of the Missouri" or "Three Forks".
