History[edit]

Arkansas 93 1926.svg

Arkansas Highway 93 was one of the original 1926 Arkansas state highways. The route ran north in Randolph County along its present day alignment, without the Highway 231 junction (the highway was not yet designated). Highway 93's southern terminus was US 62, which was later rerouted south and now runs through Pocahontas, with the former alignment becoming Highway 90.[3]
