In the Ozark Mountain Foothills on the beautiful Strawberry River
Horseshoe Bend, Arkansas is nestled in the Ozark Mountains of North Central Arkansas on the Strawberry River. It is located approximately 2 1/2 hours Northwest of Memphis, Tennessee and 2 1/2 hours Northeast of Little Rock, Arkansas.
Horseshoe Bend offers a special peace and quiet and yet this serenity has a magic about it that also creates an atmosphere of excitement and youthful energy.
We always sell out quickly when we get Horseshoe Bend lots. They are a favorite with retirees from all across the country.
There are three lakes with boating, fishing, and swimming, in Horseshoe Bend with Crown Lake, the largest, at 600 acres.
Two golf courses, one which is an executive 18-hole Championship Golf Course atop Turkey Mountain which has breathtaking views. The other course is Cedar Glade Golf Course which is a state-of-the-art Par 3 walking course that is located at the Hillhigh Hotel and Spa.
Izard County was formed on October 17, 1825, as the 13th county of the Territory of Arkansas from parts of Independence County. It was named for George Izard, the second Governor of the territory. Melbourne is the county seat. The landscape of the county is rugged and mountainous. The Ozark hill country is good for raising cattle, and timber, and silica sand is found in the rivers. Small manufacturing has boosted the economy. The White River forms the southwestern border and provides recreation and fishing. A world-famous trout fishing river, the White, brings cold water from the depths of Bull Shoals and Norfork lakes, gradually warming near Batesville. The Strawberry River is a good stream for floaters and on this river is located Horseshoe Bend, a resort retirement community. The rugged hill country offers hunting and natural Ozark beauty. Calico Rock, a quaint old town, sits on the bluffs above the White River and offers its small-town charm. As of the 2000 census, Izard County had a population of 13,249 residents.
Izard County was once a part of the great Cherokee Indian Nation, and history shows that DeSoto visited this section in 1541. The county was once a part of the Loisiana Territory and was named after Arkansas Governor Izard. The area has a wealth of history and a bright future. Tourism is the largest industry in this part of the state and the perfect place for vacations and retirement.
