Altheimer is a second-class city in Jefferson County, Arkansas. The community is located near the Arkansas River northeast of Pine Bluff, placing it in a transition zone between the Arkansas Timberlands and Arkansas River lowlands subregion of the Arkansas Delta. Founded as a railroad town along the Cotton Belt, the city flourished from the cotton industry until mechanization on the farm began to replace farmhands in the fields in the mid-20th century.[1] Altheimer is located in the Pine Bluff metropolitan area, and has seen a decrease in population to 984 at the 2010 census.
