Jonesboro is a small city located in northeast Arkansas in the rich lands bordering the Mississippi known as the Arkansas Delta. The area was inhabited by various indigenous nations for thousands of years, eventually becoming an American settlement in the early 1800s. After an initial period of construction was interrupted by several fires, Jonesboro developed over the next 200 years to become a center in the region for education, agriculture and other local industries.
