Important Information for Future Renters
Siloam Springs is just down the road from Ozark National Forest. The forest is more than 1 million acres in size and is mostly filled with hardwood like oak and hickory. It was established as a National Forest in 1908.
Simon Sager settled near the city's current boundaries in 1835 to farm. The creek which runs through the city has been named for him, as he was the earliest settler. The city saw a population boom and bust in the late 1800s with speculation for a railroad and resort. Since then the population has steadily increased and now Siloam Springs is home to a diverse set of industries.
