Montgomery County, Arkansas Overview

Montgomery County is a county located in the U.S. state of Arkansas. As of the 2010 census, the population was 9,487. The county seat, and largest community is Mount Ida. Montgomery County is Arkansas’s 45th county, formed on December 9, 1842, and named after Richard Montgomery, an American Revolutionary War general. With the arrival of the Missouri Pacific Railroad in Caddo Gap around the turn of the 20th century, Caddo Gap and Black Springs began to thrive. In 1910 the county population reached its peak, with sawmills springing up in several locations. That same year, the town of Womble was settled. It changed its name to Norman in 1925. In 1918 the logging camp of Mauldin, Arkansas sprang up, and a railroad line was built to it from Norman. However, almost overnight in 1936, Mauldin closed, dismantled everything, and moved on having depleted the virgin timber in the area. This, combined with the Great Depression, had a devastating effect on the county. Many people moved away to find work elsewhere, while others found employment with the Civilian Conservation Corps. During World War II, people continued to leave Montgomery County, with the men going off to war, and others leaving to find employment in war plants. Mining became one source of local employment for a time, but did not last. Most mines were due to a large abundance of quartz in the county. In 1922 there were 83 school districts in Montgomery County. Today there are three, Caddo Hills, Mount Ida, and Ouachita River. Cattle, swine, and poultry are now the main areas of employment in the region. The total square mile area of the county is 800, 780 of which is land and the remaining 20 square miles is water. Montgomery County is surrounded by seven other Arkansas counties: Yell to the north, Garland to the east, Hot Spring, and Clark to the southeast, Pike to the south, Polk to the west and Scott to the northwest. Nationally protected Ouachita National Forest is partially located within the county lines. The county occupies nine zip codes, the largest of which is 71957.
