Yell County
Yell County was created December 5, 1840 from Pope and Scott counties.
It was named for Archibald Yell, a governor and the first member of the United States House of Representatives from Arkansas, who died in combat in the Mexican War.


 Located in west-central Arkansas, the northern portion of the county, adjacent to the Arkansas River, is part of the Arkansas River Valley geographic region, while the southern and most of the eastern portions are within the Ouachita National Forest, and a small portion of eastern Yell County is within the Ozark St. Francis National Forest. Named for Governor Archibald Yell, the county boasts a forest products and lumber industry, poultry production and processing, row crops, and livestock production.
