Fulton County

Fulton County was formed December 21, 1842, from territory taken from Izard County and is named for William S. Fulton, the last governor of Arkansas Territory. The county seat is Salem. Landscape of Fulton County is rugged and mountainous. The well-known Mammoth Spring, one of the largest single-outlet springs in North America, is in the county. Many recreational activities can be found around this area. Lake Norfork and Horseshoe Bend provide water sports. Nearly half of the land area of the county is in pastureland. Beef cattle, poultry farming, and feed production are leading agricultural activities. The Fulton County courthouse, built in 1890, was restored in 1973 and has become a landmark. The Saturday night hoedown in Fulton County has been kept alive and is a favorite of residents and tourists alike. In May of each year, Fulton County stages an Old Timer Sailor and Marine reunion, which unites people from all over the country. Several other music festivals also are held in May.
