Arkansas Yell County Public Libraries

Yell County was created December 5, 1840, from parts of Pope and Scott counties and was named for Archibald Yell, second Governor of the State of Arkansas. The landscape of the county is rolling farmlands, forested ridges, and isolated mountains and lakes with rugged terrain in the south. The economic base of Yell County is well balanced. Leading industries are connected with production of poultry, hogs, and beef cattle with some small manufacturing. Tourism and recreation activities are very popular in an area full of lakes. The Arkansas River, Lake Dardanelle, Nimrod Lake, Blue Mountain Lake and Kingfisher Lake are poplar with the professional angler as well as the local fisherman. Mount Nebo State Park rises 1,800 feet above the mountain valleys and has cabins, campsites, picnic sites, tennis courts, swimming pool, and hiking trails. Mount Magazine State Park offers camping and picnicking. Petit Jean Mountain and Wildlife Management Area offer hunting and beautiful scenery. The county has dual seats, Danville and Dardanelle. As of the 2000 census, Yell county had a population of 21,139 residents.
