Welcome to the on-line home of the Johnson County (Arkansas) Historical Society. We are located in west central Arkansas with the Arkansas River on our southern border and the Ozark National Forest bordering the north. Our county has a rich history. From the coal mines of the western section of the county to the German colonies of the eastern section, our county has a diverse past.  Long known for our peach production, we presently boast a varied agricultural industry especially poultry and beef. Johnson County was the temporary home of many families heading west.  Of course, many of those families loved it so much that they stayed here.  Hopefully, we will be able to help you discover your Johnson County history.  We are proud to share our heritage here in Johnson County.  Please visit our Heritage Center, at 131 W. Main, Clarksville, Monday through Friday, 10 to 4. Happy researchin'
