Yellville is named after Archibald Yell who was the first member of the United States House of Representatives from Arkansas, second Governor of Arkansas, and who fell in combat at the Battle of Buena Vista in the Mexican-American War. Yellville existed well before the state of Arkansas was accepted into the United States in 1836, but under a different name. The actual name of Yellville is explained by Marian Burnes in the 1979 book, The History of Marion County: In 1836 Marion County was formed...At that time, Yellville was chosen as a name for the town, in honor of Arkansas's 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. Yell fought in the Mexican War under General Zachary Taylor and died in the war in 1848. The name Yell can be seen across Arkansas, as in Yell County, Arkansas and Archibald Yell Boulevard in Fayetteville, Arkansas. At least two biographies of Yell have been written, the most recent published by the University of Arkansas Press in Fayetteville. In the late 1840s it was the scene of several intense gunfights during the Tutt-Everett War. Interestingly current relatives of Governor Yell read about how Yellville got its name and in 2006 paid the naming fee without interest. To honor the original town name, the local town branch that flows near Crooked Creek and through town is called the Shawnee Town Branch. There is also a Shawneetown Days Festival.  (Sep 17, 2009 | post #15)

Two Flippin residents arrested on burglary charges

Why didn't Mary have someone she trusted receive the boxes for her...Surely you knew someone from here Mary or did you just throw a dart on a atlas and hope for the best, seriously some planning on your part for deliveries of that magnitude would have been appropriate especially if you were ill. And let me ask you this...If the boxes had been delivered to "Strictly for example only" Your mothers house and had been left with no-one to receive, do you not think they would have been taken? How about if they were left in front of your favorite church, or better yet the Popes home, my point is, left unattended they will be taken from anywhere, not just Yellville.. There is criminal activity all over or do you not have a t.v? Oh, my bad, it was probably stolen...  (Sep 11, 2009 | post #87)

It was originally named Rapps Barren. Eventually, the name was dropped as it was thought that the term “barren” was not appropriate for such a beautiful area. The new post office established in 1857 went by the name Mountain Home. Legend has it that the name originated from slaves who referred to their plantation, which was cooled by the mountain breezes, as “My Sweet Mountain Home.”  (Sep 11, 2009 | post #2)
