Preserving the rich history and heritage of our beloved Saline County.
The Saline County History and Heritage Society, Inc., was formed in 1986, with the
objective of preserving the history of Saline County, Arkansas and her families.
At the time of the founding of the SCHHS, there was virtually nothing in print on
Saline County, although the county is one of the oldest in the state, having been
formed from Pulaski County in 1835 - even before Arkansas became a state in 1836.
Saline County is one of the small number of counties with county records virtually
intact; there have been no courthouse fires, although losses of records have occurred
over the years through neglect. Transcripts and abstracts of many of these records
have been published by the SCHHS over the years (see The Bookstore link above), both
individually and for the benefit of SCHHS, and more are being compiled every day.
