Springdale History

Springdale was originally inhabited by Native American tribes. The Osage Indians used the area for seasonal hunting in the late 18th century. It was first settled by the whites in the 1830s. The Shiloh Primitive Baptist Church was the area's first church, and it was established in 1843. The area was also named Shiloh. The first post office was established in 1872, and the area was renamed to Springdale because another Shiloh existed in Arkansas. The city was incorporated on April 1, 1878.
