1899 Courthouse


William Clark who at the time was Governor of the Missouri Territory, which included present-day Arkansas.

COUNTY SEAT NAMED FOR: One possibility is that the name Arkadelphia was formed by combining Ark- from the state's name Arkansas and adelphia from the Greek meaning brother/place.  Another possibility is that the city was named after Arkadelphia, Alabama, a small community just north of Birmingham. Many early settlers of the area arrived from that state, and it was a common practice at the time to name newly founded communities after ones that the settlers had left behind.

 1899 Courthouse made of brick.
