Southern Arkansas: Skilled Nursing Communities and Nursing Homes


View Community Listings

South Arkansas is the greater area in Arkansas that encompasses the lower 15 counties of the state, with Union County being the most predominate. In the 1920s, nationwide attention focused on South Arkansas when the Smackover field was ranked first among the nation's oil fields. For five months in 1925, the 40-square-mile Smackover field was the focal point of one of the wildest mineral booms in North America. Today, south Arkansas's oil fields produce petroleum throughout a 10-county area.

Columbia and Union counties also stretch over one of the largest brine reserves in the world. Bromine is derived from brine, or saltwater, and local companies play an international role in the commercialization of bromine and its many applications.
