Little River is located in eastern Rice County near Highway 56 and the Little Arkansas River. If one word could describe the community, it would be “neat”. There is plenty of civic pride in Little River, evident in the clean downtown area and the many community events to bring together the residents. The Little River Chamber of Commerce stands on three pillars of supporting local business, unifying the community and changing lives. Oliver’s Beef and Brew restaurant draws customers from all over the state and even nation. It is a favorite with daily specials and steaks purchased from the grocery store next door. More than 20 other businesses are located in Little River. Mutual Telephone has a new office building downtown which includes a community room. Others include a bank, insurance agency, home building, beauty shops, newspaper and cookie dough factory.
