Bentonville is on the southwestern edge of the Ozark Plateau, which extends into Arkansas and Oklahoma. The city's elevation rises from 1,333 feet (407 m) above sea level at the intersection of Highway 71 and 270 in south Bentonville to 2,094 feet (639 m) atop Beaver Lake Mountain at Thorncrown Chapel. The area was first settled in 1837 when Thomas Hart Benton built a log cabin alongside Spring Creek. A community developed around it known as "Hog Eye" after nearby Hog Eye Creek; this name was later changed to "Benton's Ferry", then shortened to Bentonville. In 1841, his son-in-law Drury Clark established a post office for the community.
