HISTORY OF JACKSON COUNTY:      CLICK TO SEE TOWNSHIP MAP

Jackson Co. was named for President Andrew Jackson. It was organized in accordance with an act of the legislature of theTerritory of Arkansas,5 Nov.1829. As then constituted it contained nearly all of what is now Woodruff Co.The site of the permanent seat of justice for the county was chosen in 1832 at Litchfied which was on the Jacksonport and Augusta road at the crossing of Village Creek about 3 miles north of the present town of Newport. In 1839 the seat moved to Elizabeth, a place on the northeast side of White River, midway between Jacksonport and Newport. It is now under the river and no longer there. In 1852 it was moved to Augusta which is now the Co seat of Woodruff Co. Next year 1853, Jacksonport became the Co. seat and finally it moved to Newport, the largest town in the county and there it has remained.
