Images of America-Newton Co
Written by Ray and Diane Hanley with the Newton County Historical Society, this book contains 127 pages that contain photographs and descriptions of life and history in Newton County.
Anchored around the county seat of Jasper with a population of less than 500, Newton County is a nature lover's dream.
The majority of the county is composed of the Ozark National Forest and the scenic corridor of the Buffalo National River, the nation's first national river. Spring weekends find the area filled with vehicles bearing canoes and kayaks traveling to float the incomparable Buffalo River and, as year-round backpackers head out for scores of trails through the most striking wilderness in the eastern half of the nation. Amidst the scenery, long before the backpackers and vacationing families, Newton County was home to self-sufficient pioneers who began arriving in the early 1800s to build log cabins and farms to support their families--a spirit that remains today.
