Welcome to Paragould: a historic yet modern community! The town started to develop into the town we know today in the early 1880’s. The arrival of the railroad brought in more residents, more industries, and more businesses over the next century and its growth hasn’t stopped since. While Paragould has many modern amenities—including shopping centers, hospitals, and manufacturing companies—it hasn’t lost touch with its small-town roots. Downtown Paragould is still filled with historic brick storefronts, and neighbors still say “hello” to each other in passing.
Crowley’s Ridge National Scenic Byway is a major attraction in Paragould. Stretching nearly 200 miles in Arkansas alone, this historic highway travels alongside rich Arkansas farmland, forests, and state parks. Near Paragould, this route lies along Highway 141 and passes by Crowley’s Ridge State Park, a popular spot for camping, hiking, and kayaking on the lake.
