Originally called Shiloh, the city changed its name to Springdale when it applied for a post office in 1872 — the name Shiloh was already taken. It is the fourth largest city in Arkansas, after Little Rock, Fort Smith, and Fayetteville, and takes up a surprisingly large area despite having a population below 80,000. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Springdale has a total area of 108.9 square miles, and is located in both Washington County and Benton County. In 2013, the city officially became “The Poultry Capital Of The World”.
Springdale has helped drive the growing metropolitan area of Northwest Arkansas, and has been an important industrial city in Northwest Arkansas for more than a century. Most residents of Springdale don’t know that it used to have the largest apple evaporator in the world. Now Springdale is how to Tyson’s and George’s world headquarters – hence the title of “The Poultry Capital Of The World” – and several trucking companies as well as a broad range of manufacturing and food processing companies.
In addition to its industrial significance, Springdale is a great city for sports fans. There are plenty of parks and sports complexes, including Tyson Sports Complex an indoor sports complex. Springdale is right down the road from Bud Walton Arena and Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville, but Springdale is also the home to its very own minor league baseball team. You can watch the Arkansas Naturals play a game at Arvest Ballpark from the spring through the end of summer.
