Sebastian County Townships


County Formation

Sebastian County was created on January 6, 1851. It was created from that part of Crawford County, which lay south of the Arkansas River, the western part of Scott county, and a small portion of the northwestern part of Polk County. Scott County gave all the territory north of the top of Black Jack Ridge and two ranges were taken from the west end across to Polk County. On June 1, 1861, the southern boundary of the county was fixed on the top of the Poteau Mountains, and the territory taken from Scott and Polk counties was restored.

The newly created county was named in honor of United States Senator, William K. Sebastian, who served the state of Arkansas from 1848-1861.
