Maumelle is located in Pulaski County between North Little Rock and Conway, situated on Hwy 100 along the banks of the Arkansas River. Also positioned just east of Lake Maumelle.
The population estimate for July 1, 1998 was 8,761, an increase of 2,047 since 1990.
Maumelle is part of the Little Rock-North Little Rock, Arkansas metro area.
The first white man to see what is now Maumelle was the Spanish explorer Hernando De Soto. In 1541, he and his men made their way up the Arkansas River searching for gold. One of the early settlers arrived in 1812, General Edmund Hogan, who served in the special Arkansas County Militia of the Missouri Territory.
By the spring of 1974, the new town's infrastructure, complete with a master plan, was in place and the first family moved in.
Since its beginning nearly 200 years ago, Maumelle has grown into an attractive and complete community with businesses and industries, shopping centers, churches and schools.
