In 1836, Arkansas was admitted as the 25th state of the United States. The 2017 census lists Arkansas as having a population of about 3 million people. The state’s capital and the most populous city is Little Rock, a central hub for government, commerce, and transportation located in the central part of the state, followed by Fort Smith, and Fayetteville.
The name Arkansas derives from a French term, Arcansas, after the native people who settled in the area around the 13th century. The name was pronounced in a variety of ways until 1881 when the decision was made to pronounce Arkansas with the final "s" being silent.
Arkansas borders six other states: Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Tennessee, and Mississippi. Its unique terrain can be divided into two distinct parts: the northern highlands which include The Ozarks and the Ouachita Mountains, and the southern lowlands that include the Gulf Coastal Plain and the Arkansas Delta.
