=== History Timeline ===

{{AR Historical Timeline Intro|Carroll}}
  
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>

[[Image:Charles Carroll.JPG|thumb|right|150px|<center>Charles Carroll</center>]]
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.  
+
*1808 - The Osage ceded their rights to northwest Arkansas to the government of the USA.
 
+
*1818 - The United States government established a reservation for the Western Cherokee.
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.
+
*1828 - The reservation was given up, and the land became the property of the federal government once more.
 
+
*1833 - November 1, Carroll County was created
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;
+
*1840s - William and Charles Sneed were the area’s first settlers.
 
+
*1840s - In the county’s early years, lumber mills appeared, farmers grew sustenance crops, and an abundance of game made for good hunting.
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.
+
*1879 - The use of mineral springs in the western part of the county brought a rapid population increase in the area.
 
+
*1883 - The railroad reached Eureka Springs.

History Timeline[edit | edit source]

Emphasis for this timeline is on events that affected migration, records, or record-keeping. Unless otherwise mentioned, the events below were taken from the Arkansas County page on the website, The Encyclopedia of Arkansas History and Culture. [7]

Charles Carroll
  • 1808 - The Osage ceded their rights to northwest Arkansas to the government of the USA.
  • 1818 - The United States government established a reservation for the Western Cherokee.
  • 1828 - The reservation was given up, and the land became the property of the federal government once more.
  • 1833 - November 1, Carroll County was created
  • 1840s - William and Charles Sneed were the area’s first settlers.
  • 1840s - In the county’s early years, lumber mills appeared, farmers grew sustenance crops, and an abundance of game made for good hunting.
  • 1879 - The use of mineral springs in the western part of the county brought a rapid population increase in the area.
  • 1883 - The railroad reached Eureka Springs.
  • 1901 - Additional rail travel came to Carroll County with the completion of the St. Louis and North Arkansas line from Harrison (Boone County) to Green Forest, Berryville, and Eureka Springs
  • 1920s-1930s - Due to an economy based on agriculture, many residents had to seek employment elsewhere. Some headed to the oil fields in Oklahoma, others to California. Thus began a population decline that lasted until 1960.
