Living in Conway, AR

A.P. Robinson, the chief engineer for the Little Rock-Fort Smith Railroad, founded Conway shortly after the Civil War ended. He received a deed to a tract of land as part of his compensation, which he gave back to the railroad so he could build a depot site. Conway became the seat of Faulkner County in 1873 and experienced rapid growth in size and population shortly thereafter. The city quickly became a trade center for the rural agricultural area, which, along with local universities, fueled the local economy until after World War II.

World War II led to a more diverse economy as businesspeople and small industries made their way to Conway. Today, the city has a sizeable industry and technological base that keeps intelligent individuals working in town. As a very family-friendly community nestled in a beautiful landscape, Conway has distinguished itself as a unique Southern town.

Conway Work and Study

The University of Central Arkansas, Hendrix College and Central Baptist College are all located in town and are joined by a number of educational opportunities located 32 miles away in Little Rock. Arkansas Baptist College, Philander Smith College, Remington College and the University of Arkansas at Little Rock join campuses of Heritage College and Webster University to offer students some of the most diverse educational opportunities in the South.

Conway has been nicknamed “The City of Colleges” because of the town’s number of universities, and many local residents work in various university positions to support the infrastructure of a college town. Twenty-four percent of locals work in educational, health and social services, while manufacturing and retail trade employ another 23 percent of residents.
