Benton County was founded in 1840 and was named after Thomas Hart Benton. He was a lawyer and a member of the U.S. Senate from Missouri.  He was a big proponet of pioneers and settlers in the West.
Benton County covers 406.30 sq. miles and like the first settlers, over 90% of the county is agriculture.
