County History

With its flat-topped mountains covered with upland forests of oak and hickory, known as the Ozark Mountain Region, was formed on November 1, 1823, and named for Charles Carroll, a signer of the Declaration of Independence from Maryland. A fast-growing county, last census, (1990), showed a 15.1% increase in population. Poultry growing and processing has become the number one economic activity with tourism and beef production close behind. Some of the most spectacular scenery in the Ozarks is found here. Forest, meadows, limestone bluffs, and springs are breath taking. Carroll County has dual county seats, Berryville, an old fashion town square, is surrounded by shops, restaurants and museums, and Eureka Springs, called "Little Switzerland." Victorian cottages cling to the hillsides; steep winding streets never cross at right angles. Some of the finest artists live and work in the county. Beaver and Table Rock Lakes offer fishing, boating, swimming and other water sports. Shopping in the area shops is popular for all ages. The Eureka Springs courthouse is located on the winding main street that is lined with hotels and shops.
