Keo, Arkansas is one of the few well-preserved cotton plantation towns in existence today.  We are extremely proud of our continued growth and community spirit.  We are a community that still remembers to truly care about one another an the community in which we live.  It is surprising to find that there are as many businesses that exist in our small town with a population of 232.  See our list of businesses on the next page.  We are still connected to our past in many ways and like to keep the memories from our city’s past alive.  The website shares some of our history along with our future.
