Lovely County

Lovely County was Formed on October 13, 1827, from Crawford County, AR, and the Lovely Purchase. Lovely County included more of present day Oklahoma than present day Arkansas. It was the northwestern corner of the Arkansas Territory. The Oklahoma portion of the county was lost in 1828 with the Cherokee Treaty of that year. Most of the remainder became Washington County, AR, on October 27,1828, and later Benton County, AR, in 1836.
