Pike County, Arkansas Overview

Pike County is a county located in the U.S. state of Arkansas. As of the 2010 census, the population was 11,291. The county seat, and largest community is Murfreesboro. Pike County is Arkansas’s 25th county, formed on November 1, 1833, and named for Lieutenant Zebulon Pike, the explorer who discovered Pikes Peak. It is an alcohol prohibition or dry county. The county’s total area is 614 square miles, 14 of which is water, and the remaining 601 is land. In the early 20th century, Rosboro, Arkansas was the headquarters of one of the state’s most productive lumber mills, and received its name from Thomas Whitaker Rosborough, owner of the lumber company. That company, originating in Rosboro, eventually moved to Springfield, Oregon, where today it is one of the largest forest product producers in the U.S., and it operates under the name of the “Rosboro Timber Company”. During World War II Murfreesboro was used as a site to house and work German prisoners of war. Since the late 19th century, the county’s main source of employment has been in the timber industry. The county is surrounded by neighboring Arkansas counties: Montgomery to the north, Clark to the east, Nevada to the southeast, Hempstead to the south and Howards to the west. The county is also partially home to the nationally protected Ouachita National Forest. Singer Glen Campbell was born in Billstown, Arkansas and raised in nearby Delight in Pike County. Ten zip codes are in use in the county, with 71943 being the largest.
