Pine Bluff History

Pine Bluff was incorporated in January 1839. In 1819, Joseph Bonne, who was half Quapaw Indian and half French, settled here. The Quapaws began to give up their land titles after the treaty of 1824. Many settlers arrived in the 1820s. Pine Bluff was made the county seat of Jefferson county during the 1832 county election. The city grew due to the increase of transportation facilities. Pine Bluff was affected by the Civil War and recovered slowly after the war. A flood in 1927 and drought in 1930 shockingly affected the area’s economy. World War II had a deep impact on Pine Bluff. In 2004, the Walmart Super center opened which brought much growth to the area.
