Biographical/Historical Note

Greene County, Arkansas, was formed out of Lawrence County on November 5, 1833. The county was named after Revolutionary War hero Nathanael Greene, and is located in the northeastern region of Arkansas next to Clay, Randolph, Lawrence, and Craighead counties. Benjamin Crowley was instrumental in the establishment of Greene County. He moved to Lawrence County from Kentucky in 1815, and settled next to the Spring River. Crowley received a land grant in 1821 for his military service from the war of 1812, and his land would later be called Crowley's Ridge. Crowley's home was used as a community meeting place and the county seat until it was moved to the town of Paris, then later to Gainesville.
