“In 1836 Marion County was formed…At that time, Yellville was chosen as a name for the town, in honor of Arkansas’ second governor, Archibald Yell. The story has been handed down that he wanted the new town named in his honor and offered the founding fathers $50 to do so. They named it Yellville, but the $50 was never paid. Before Archibald Yell, the settlement was called Shawneetown for the Indian villages located here.” – The History of Marion County by Marion Burnes.
