Stone County was created April 21, 1873, from parts of Izard, Independence, Searcy and Van Buren counties and was named for the abundant rock formations of the area. The county seat is Mountain View. The landscape of the county is rugged Ozark Mountains. Stone County is known for two major assets: its mountainous beauty and the culture of its mountain folks. The economic base is poultry, livestock, wood products, and light manufacturing along with tourism. The countryside is as unique as the people. The Ozark National Forest and the Blanchard Spring Caverns are poplar in the area. The Ozark Folk Center is a unique state park.
