Jackson County, with approximately 18,400 residents, is in the northeastern part of Arkansas, containing about 637 square miles. Since 1892, Newport has been the county seat. Jackson County was formed in 1829 and named for U.S. President Andrew Jackson. Major highways are U.S. 67 and Arkansas 37. Located in rich delta farm land, with the exception of rolling hills in its extreme southwestern part, Jackson County farmers raise rice, soybeans, corn, milo, beef cattle, and catfish. Fishermen catch catfish in the Black River, which forms the county’s northwestern boundary, and trout in the White River, also in western Jackson County. Hunting is popular in the Wildlife Management Area which reaches into four counties. Come to Jacksonport State Park in June for the Portfest Rollin' on the River Festival, one of the top 100 festivals in the nation.
