Lonoke County is the only county in Arkansas whose county seat bears the same name, named by a railroad surveyor that used a massive red oak tree as a landmark. Lonoke County was established on April 16, 1873. The County is still a primarily agricultural county. The Joe Hogan Fish Hatchery, the Smoke Hold Natural Area, Toltec Mounds State Park, and Camp Nelson Confederate Park are areas of interest in the County. The Lonoke County Courthouse was built in 1928. This building is the third courthouse we have had due to fire and rebuilding. The Lonoke County Courthouse Square is located at 301 North Center Street in the City of Lonoke.
