Long Description:
Scotia was selected as the county seat in 1830, the year after the county was created. When Johnson County was formed in 1833, the county seat in Pope was moved to Dwight Mission, whence it was moved the next year to Morristown, on the north side of the Arkansas River, opposite Dardanelle Rock. In 1841 the county seat was moved to Dover where it remained until 1887, being moved in that year to Russellville. The county was named in honor of Territorial Governor John Pope.
