Welcome to Little Italy, Arkansas.
Generations of Arkansans have called Little Italy home. Settled in 1915 by Italian immigrants, the community today still contains descendants of the first people to this area as well as newer families who enjoy the beauty of nature and wide open spaces of this well-loved historic land.

100+ years strong!

Little Italy celebrated its 100th year on December 23, 2015 as a historic community in Arkansas.
