Faulkner County

Faulkner County was formed on April 12, 1873, from parts of Conway and Pulaski counties. It was named for Col. Sanford C. Faulkner, a fiddle player and tall-tale teller, who was given the name of being the original “Arkansaw Traveler.” The county seat is Conway. The landscape of the county is rolling hills and farmland. Its proximity to Little Rock and to major transportation routes makes it attractive for industry such as light manufacturing. The population of Faulkner County is 113,237 (2010 census). Three institutions of higher learning are located in Conway: Hendrix College, Central Baptist College, and the University of Central Arkansas. Conway also is home to the Arkansas Educational Television Network. Woolly Hollow State Park has a lake, picnic area, hiking trails, and campsites. Lake Conway, the country’s largest Game and Fish Commission lake, has 6,700 acres of good fishing, and Cadron Creek has excellent floating past scenic areas. Toad Suck Park is the site of an Arkansas River crossing dating back to 1820 and the current site of Toad Suck Ferry Lock and Dam. In May of each year, “Toad Suck Daze” features a toad-jumping contest and other activities that attract large crowds of locals and visitors.
