Hopefield was the first settlement in Crittenden County, Arkansas near the Mississippi River bank. The city was burned to the ground by Federal Forces on February 19, 1863. The city never regained the prominence it once held in the county.
Today, the +/- 800 acre Hopefield site in West Memphis is primed to regain prominence in the 21st century as an industrial site located less than 1/3 mile from I-40 and I-55; BNSF and UP rail service are located on the property; 2.5 miles from the Port of West Memphis on the Mississippi River; and labor force training at the ASU Mid-South Campus. The site is a certified Foreign Trade Zone and is in the process of becoming a shovel-ready site listed on the Arkansas Economic Development Commission.
