Newton County is part of the Harrison, AR Micropolitan Statistical Area. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 823 square miles, of which 821 square miles is land and 2.3 square miles is water.

Highway 7, which traverses the county from north to south, has been rated as one of the most scenic drives in the region. From a historical perspective, Newton County residents were very divided during the Civil War, serving in both the Confederate and Union armies. John Cecil, who had earlier served as Newton County’s sheriff, served as a Confederate Captain. Jasper blacksmith James R. Vanderpool served as Captain of Union Company C, 1st Regiment Arkansas Infantry Volunteers, while farmer and teacher John McCoy served as Captain of Union Company F, 1st Regiment Arkansas Infantry Volunteers. Many Newton County citizens served under each of these men, as well as in other units. As an example of how the war divided families, Confederate Captain Cecil’s brother, Sam, served as a sergeant in Union Company D, 2nd Regiment Arkansas Cavalry Volunteers. Violence took a severe toll on the civilian population, and at one point, Captains McCoy and Vanderpool escorted 20 wagons of Unionist families from Newton County to Missouri to seek refuge. The county is home to the Upper Buffalo Wilderness, which is nationally protected. Six other Arkansas counties surround Nevada County and they include: Boone to the north, Searcy to the east, Pope to the southeast, Johnson to the south, Madison to the west, and Carroll to the northwest.
