Carter was a unincorporated community in White River Township, Washington County, Arkansas, United States.[2] It is located on Arkansas Highway 74 between Arnett and Sulphur City. At times it was also known as Carter's Store, Carter Store, and Hicks.[3] A post office, for all these names at different times existed from 1875 to 1953. It was founded by Dr. John Carter who built a springhouse and a store. There was also a blacksmith shop at some point in time. The springhouse is now on exhibit at Shiloh Museum of the Ozarks in Springdale.
