Fayetteville, Arkansas was formerly known as Washington county seat in 1828, where the parish used to reside. To avoid confusing the location with Washington, Hempstead county, the name was changed a year later. As of 2009, the population of this city was 73,372, the third most populous city in the state, as well as the second most educated city, next to Maumelle. Fayettville is located in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas. It is 44.5 square miles, 1.1 of which is water, and the rest of which is land. Usually, Fayetteville remains humid, but higher elevations of the Ozarks can get some of the coldest nights recorded.
