Around Town

Benton is the seat for Saline County in Arkansas and was incorporated in 1836. Our population is expected to reach more than 40,000 residents by 2020. Through all of the recent growth, we have maintained a comfortable, small town feel to our city.

Take a look around and you will see why we are Benton Proud of our community!

The Saline County Courthouse was built in 1911 and is considered one of the most beautiful structures of its kind in Arkansas.
