Arkadelphia has been my home for the last 17 years. It is a small town that is a short drive away from several larger cities. I love that the community is devoted to education. There are two universities in this town that also support the local public school district. Additionally, Arkadelphia has a rich history and is continually striving to improve its economy.

Arkadelphia is a small town about an hour away from Arkansas' capital, Little Rock. Arkadelphia is mostly know for a college town hosting both Henderson State University and Ouachita Baptist University. After spending almost 2 years here in Arkadelphia, it is safe to say that Arkadelphia is just your average small town. The biggest store here is Walmart, where many of the college students spend their time instead of studying. Arkadelphia is just your regular ol' town.
It is a good place to stay, good schools, colleges, friendly people. I have lived here for 12 years, I moved here with my mom and siblings in 2007. I like it here, just wish we had better job offers. Also they could improve with having things for kids to do after school. Something like a after school programs, or weekend activities. Other than those two things, it is great place to live.
