Newton County was formed from a part of Carroll County. John Bellah's house was designated temporary county seat, but Jasper soon thereafter was chosen for the permanent seat. Bellah's place was described as being on Hutson's Fork of the Buffalo.
Jasper is on the Little Buffalo River. The origin of the name of Jasper for the town is not certain.
Walter Lackey, a native and author of a history of the county, recorded that a postoffice was established in and given the name of Jasper. This was to conform to the name of a village that already existed. Lackey surmised that the name originated from a block of marble quarried in the county and shipped to Washington, D. Lackey also speculated that two men who helped with the quarrying, John Ross and Samuel Kelly, were mindful of stones mentioned in the Bible.
