Benton County is very proud of its small towns and their big charms where each town offers its own unique mixture of past and present. Compared to our neighboring counties, our populations may be considered modest but the spirit of our communities are certainly mighty. Benton County residents take pride in knowing their neighbors and taking care of each other in times of need. Our town parks, festivals, and golf courses represent only a few recreational opportunities that are available to foster these important friendships.
