Nevada County

Nevada County was formed on March 20, 1871, from parts of Columbia, Hempstead and Ouachita counties. Its name comes from the similarity of its shape to the state of Nevada. However, the pronunciation is different. The county seat is Prescott. The landscape of Nevada County is rolling hills, largely forested. Nevada County’s timber industry is its main economy source, with poultry and outdoor sports contributing their share. Festivals celebrating the timber and poultry industries are held each year. The county has an abundance of wildlife — deer, squirrel, quail, dove, and turkey — along with camping, which make it popular among residents and visitors. White Oak Lake and White Oak State Park feature excellent fishing, hiking trails, and sites for camping and picnicking. The present courthouse was built in 1964 and has gaslights (manufactured at a nearby plant), and several flower gardens ornament the lawn. A large clock from the old Bank of Prescott stands on a red brick base on the courthouse grounds near a white limestone war memorial. The Nevada County Depot Museum is located in Prescott in the old Missouri-Pacific train depot, which is considered to be a classic example of early 20th-century railroad architecture.
