== History  ==
 
 
[[Image:Charles Carroll.JPG|thumb|right|250px]]
 
 
Carroll County, Arkansas from Izard County by a legislative act passed 1 Nov 1833. That act took effect on 25 Dec 1833, making the county Arkansas's 26th county.
 
 
Prior to that, part of what is currently Northwest Arkansas and Northeast Oklahoma became Lovely County. Lovely County, which was intended as a residence for Native Americans, was in operation from 1827 to 1828. The ''Lovely County Citizen'', published today in Carroll County's Eureka Springs, is named for the earlier county. Lovely County derived its name from William and Persis Lovely, a white couple who lived among the Cherokee.<br>
 
 
In Jan 1834, Carrollton became the county seat and remained so until 1875 or 1880 (sources differ), when Berryville took its place. Currently, the county has dual county seats, Berryville and Eureka Springs. King's River serves as the jurisdictional line between these two county seats, with Berryville serving as the primary seat.
 
 
The White River flows through Carroll County. The area contains some of the most mountainous portions of the Ozark Mountains. The county has been noted for its oak and hickory forests and, currently, for poultry and beef production.
 
 
Tourism is also a significant industry in Carroll County. This is largely because of Eureka Springs, known as "Little Switzerland." Eureka Springs is characterized by Victorian buildings clustered on steep mountain streets.&nbsp;The county's other county seat, Berryville, is home to the Saunders Museum.&nbsp;
 
 
The county is named after [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Carroll_of_Carrollton Charles Carroll] (1737-1832) of Maryland. He was the last surviving signer of the Declaration of Independence.<ref>Charles Carroll of Carrollton, Wikipedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Carroll_of_Carrollton.</ref>&nbsp;Carroll had died just the year before Carroll County was founded.

==== Boundary Changes  ====
 
 
*Carroll County originally comprised most of what is today Boone, Newton, and Carroll Counties, along with a small area that is now in northeastern Pope County.&nbsp;<br>
 
*Part of Carroll County became Madison County in 1836.
 
*Part of Carroll County became Newton County in 1842.
 
*The northern part of Madison County was added to Carroll County in 1867.
 
*The eastern part of Carroll County became Boone County in 1869.&nbsp;
 
*Other minor boundary changes occurred in 1838, 1843, 1846, 1854, 1857, and 1869.
