Yellville is a city and county seat in Marion County, Arkansas, United States. The population was 1,204 at the 2010 Census.Kelley Linck, a tourism official from Yellville, represents Marion, Searcy, Boone, and Baxter counties in the Arkansas House of Representatives. He is a Republican.HistoryYellville is named after Archibald Yell, who was the first member of the United States House of Representatives from Arkansas and the second Governor of Arkansas. He was killed at the Battle of Buena Vista during the Mexican-American War. Yellville existed well before Arkansas became a state, though originally known as Shawneetown.Marion County was formed in 1836, shortly after statehood. Shawneetown was then renamed Yellville. An old tale claims Archibald Yell offered $50 to do so, but never paid the money. True or not, Governor Yell's descendants heard the story and paid the overdue "bill" several years ago. Yell's name can be seen elsewhere in the state, including Yell County, Arkansas and Archibald Yell Boulevard in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Several biographies of him have been written, the most recent published by the University of Arkansas Press in Fayetteville.
