Benton

Historically entertaining

To say that this small town has a rich history in an understatement. A former aluminum-mining town, Benton has become a diverse and charming community in Central Arkansas. Well aware of its important role in the state’s history and eager to preserve and showcase this role, Benton keeps the old-fashioned in fashion. It’s no wonder that antiquers from all over the region flock to Benton for some of the best shopping in the state. 

Water, water everywhere!

Outdoor fun in every season is what The Natural State is all about, and Benton is a great place to play in the water. Fishermen will love the rich diversity of the Saline River and can expect to find everything from walleye to rock bass to crappie beneath its surface. If scenery is what you seek, look no further than Sunset Lake, a great place to fish from the pier or just sit and watch the sunset, hence the name! For a vigorous workout or just pure kid fun, come on over to Benton’s new Riverside Park, a sports and aquatic complex with everything you need to keep the mind, the body and the kids fit and happy.
