Nevada County, Arkansas Overview

Nevada County is a county located in the southwestern part of the U.S. state of Arkansas. As of the 2010 census, the population was 8,997, less than half of its peak in 1920. The county seat, and largest community is Prescott. Nevada County is Arkansas’s 63rd county, formed during the Reconstruction era on March 20, 1871, from portions of Hempstead, Ouachita and Columbia counties. It was named after the state of Nevada because of the perceived similarity between their physical shapes; the Arkansas county’s shape, inverted, roughly follows the same outline as the state’s boundary. In contrast with how people pronounce the state’s name, the local pronunciation for this Arkansas county is “nuh-VAY-duh”. It is an alcohol prohibition or dry county. Dorcheat Bayou, a 122-mile stream, begins in Nevada County. It flows south into Columbia County and across the border into Webster Parish, Louisiana, where it flows into Lake Bistineau and ultimately Loggy Bayou, forming a continuous passage to the Red River. In the 19th century, the bayou was navigable for three to six months by steamboat from Bistineau to Minden. The watershed had fertile farmland, timberland and swampland. The bayou is now popular for fishing and its natural environment. The county occupies a total of 621 square miles, 618 of which is land and the remaining 2.8 is water. Nevada County is surrounded by neighboring Arkansas counties, Clark to the northeast, Ouachita to the east, Columbia to the south, Lafayette to the southwest, Hempstead to the west, and Pike to the northwest. There are eight zip codes in use in the county, the largest of which is 71857.
