Let the experience of the oldest city in Arkansas enchant you from the very start! Batesville has more history, racing, outdoor activity, and beauty than almost any other community in Arkansas! Dating back to when Batesville was first established by the Trimble's and Lafferty's in 1810, there are stories that include the Osage and Cherokee Indian Tribes, the first store being established in 1812, to the establishment of Batesville, named after Judge James Woodson Bates, the first delegate to Congress from the Arkansas Territory, in 1824.
Today, Batesville boasts some of the best genealogical records in all of Arkansas. Visitors from all over the county come to research family members and records that date back to when Batesville was first founded. You can also visit the oldest downtown in Arkansas, some of the oldest existing homes in Arkansas, and Arkansas first urban farmstead!
The beautiful White River, the very reason Batesville was established and has thrived for over 190 years, has much to offer the outdoorsman. Fishing, boating, floating, wildlife, photography, scenery, and the list could go on and on! While in Batesville enjoy the White and see why James Trimble, John L. Austin, and the Brothers Lafferty decided to call it home.
If history is more of an afternoon distraction, take time to visit one of the top speedways in all of America! Names like Mark Martin, Billy Moyer, and many others have raced on this track! Batesville Speedway, located in Locust Grove, has a racing season that begins in April and lasts until October. Batesville Speedway has all the action that your ears can handle!
Want more? Batesville also has Scottish Fest hosted by Lyon College every year in April and offers many other attractions throughout the year, such as concerts, sporting events, art exhibits, a hiking and biking trail, a disc golf course and more! Mark Martin also brings in some of his best friends from the NASCAR circuit during Mark Martin Fan Days, and the White River Water Carnival, the oldest carnival in Arkansas, is held each year in September. Do you want to play a course on the Natural State Golf Trail? We have that too! The Course at Eagle Mountain offers even the seasoned golf enthusiast a challenge while experiencing the beautiful scenery of the course. The Old Independence Regional Museum enriches the community with a wealth of history that encompasses twelve counties. Unlimited activity awaits you!
