Arkansas Junction

Arkansas Junction is a name given to the intersection of New Mexico highway 483 and US 62-180 (the Hobbs-Carlsbad highway). The location never really rose to the level of a settlement or community, like some others in the county, but most of the time has had businesses there, such as a gas station and a cafe. The Arkansas Junction Road is a name given to New Mexico highway 483 that runs due south from Lovington to the intersection. The actual origin of the name Arkansas Junction is unknown and is lost to history.
