Scott County
The 28th county was formed on November 5, 1833 from Crawford and Pope counties.
It was named for Andrew Scott, a justice of the Supreme Court of the Arkansas Territory.

Scott County is located on the west central border of Arkansas in the Ouachita Mountain region of the state. The topography of the area is mountainous and interspersed with expansive valleys along the Fourche LaFave, Petit Jean, and Poteau rivers and associated tributaries.
The town of Waldron and portions of the town of Mansfield are the two primary towns within Scott County.
Major communities in Scott County are Abbott, Bates, Blue Ball, Boles, Cauthron, Cedar Creek, Harvey, Hon, Needmore, Nola, Parks, Union Hill, Winfield, and Y City.
