Piggott, established in 1891, is one of two county seats in Clay County, Arkansas, situated in the northeast corner of the county and state. Piggott's population of 3849 is a small, proud community being one of only 17 cities in the state to own its own electricity distribution system, and one of a very few cities of its size to have a locally owned hospital.
Located at the junction of U.S. highways 62 and 49, we are honored to be a part of Arkansas Delta Byways promoting Arkansas tourism and heritage. The city’s most distinctive “Delta Destinations” are the Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum where Ernest Hemingway wrote portions of A Farewell to Arms and the Matilda and Karl Pfeiffer Museum that showcases a world-class mineral and geode collection.
