Searcy County

Searcy County was created in 1838 from a part of Madison County. It was named for Richard Searcy, a pioneer in the Arkansas Territory. The landscape of Searcy County is rugged Ozark Mountains. Marshall is the county seat. The Buffalo National River, America’s first national river, angles across the county with huge limestone bluffs and is a major canoeing and kayaking destination. The Silver Hill area hosts the national park’s Tyler Bend Visitors Center. Hurricane River Cave in the north has adventure caving opportunities, and the high mountain town of Witts Springs in the south has an annual Hillbilly Daze celebration. Gilbert, on the banks of the Buffalo River, is the “Coolest Town in Arkansas” and the smallest sister city in the world. Leslie has a fabulous old downtown that is shopping and photography worthy. Marshall hosts the only year-round operating drive-in movie theatre in the state — the Kenda Drive-In. Searcy County is a great destination for cabin rentals, elk viewing, hiking, horseback riding, autumn leaf peeping, and motorcycle riding. Livestock and timber production still are major aspects of the local economy.
