Searcy is the largest city and county seat of White County, Arkansas, United States. According to 2010 Census Bureau estimates, the population of the city is 22,858. It is the principal city of the Searcy, AR Micropolitan Statistical Area which encompasses all of White County. Like Searcy County, the city takes its name from Richard Searcy, a judge for the Superior Court of the Arkansas Territory.

Searcy is the home of Harding University, a private, higher-academic, Christian university affiliated with the Churches of Christ and the state's largest private university. Harding College (its original name) moved to Searcy from Morrilton in 1934, having bought the campus of the defunct Galloway Female College, a Methodist college for women.

One of the state's largest banks, First Security Bank, was established in Searcy in 1932 as Security Bank. First Security now has over $3.2 billion in assets and 70 locations in Arkansas.

Regional ice cream producer and distributor Yarnell Ice Cream Co. had its headquarters in the city's downtown area, until the company shuttered in July 2011. However, in April 2012 Schulze & Burch Biscuit Co., a Chicago-based wholesome snack manufacturer with a plant in Searcy, completed the acquisition of Yarnell’s Ice Cream Co.

History of Searcy


Israel Moore, who had traveled west from Philadelphia, was in charge of laying out Searcy's original streets, and "he proceeded to name the major streets of Searcy for those of downtown Old Philadelphia near Independence Hall; Race, Arch, Market, Vine, Spring, and the tree-honoring streets of Cherry, Spruce, Locust and Pine." In 1957, Searcy named Moore Street after the 19th-century founder.

Spring Street (along with downtown Searcy's Spring Park) may refer to the early history of the Searcy area, when the community was known as White Sulphur Springs. As early as 1834, local springs with purported therapeutic properties initially drew visitors to the area, similar to the popular attraction to Hot Springs, Arkansas.

During the American Civil War, the Battle of Whitney's Lane was fought near Searcy, though the exact site is disputed. Searcy Landing, on the Little Red River, is the final resting place for some Yankee soldiers.

On August 9, 1965, 53 contract workers were killed in a fire in the Titan missile silo outside Searcy. It was one of the largest industrial accidents in US history.

Despite having lost many factory jobs in the late 20th century, Searcy has recently experienced an economic revitalization. It is deriving revenue from the leasing of the area's mineral rights to natural gas companies. Some residents are concerned about the environmental impact of the extensive drilling projects that have taken place.
