West Memphis, in Crittenden County, Arkansas, is located directly across the Mississippi River from Memphis, Tennessee. West Memphis occupies an area that once included the towns of Hopefield, Bragg, and Hulbert. Founded as a logging camp near the site of the Spanish Fort Esperanza, constructed in 1797, it was known as Bragg's Mill until 1927, when its name was changed because lumber shipped from the Memphis market brought higher prices.
