Today in History | Arkansas becomes 25th state of United States

Arkansas was admitted to the union on June 15, 1836 as the 25th state of the United States.

That makes Arkansas 183 years old!

Here’s a few fun facts about the year Arkansas became a state:

  • Peach trees were in bloom
  • Heavy rains caused significant flooding on the Arkansas River
  • Rainy weather was frequent, with flooding causing damage to crops
  • Five to six inches of snow fell in Washington County
  • Two to three inches of snow fell in Little Rock
  • In Little Rock, the temperature fell from 55 degrees at 9 a.m. to 14 degrees at 9 p.m. (a fall of 41 degrees within a 12-hour time frame)
  •  The temperature in Little Rock bottomed out at nine degrees above zero

Happy 183rd Birthday, Arkansas!
