Baxter County [†] was formed from part of Fulton, Izard, Marion, and Searcy Counties on March 24, 1873. The county was named after then-Governor Elisha Baxter of Brooks-Baxter War fame (Baxter was Governor of AR from 1873-74; Baxter was a native Unionist ["scalawag"] who fought Joseph Brooks [Minstrel or "carpetbagger"] for the governorship).
