Bentonville was originally named Osage after the Osage Indians who hunted in the area when White settlers first moved to the area in 1837. The community was renamed Bentonville after Thomas Hart Benton of Missouri in 1841 and was first incorporated on April 3, 1873.

The area now known as Bentonville's first known use by humans was as hunting grounds by the Osage Indians who lived in Missouri. The Osage would leave their settlements to hunt in present-day Benton County for months at a time before returning to their families. White settlers first inhabited the area around 1837 and named their settlement Osage. By this time, the Osage had ceased using the area for hunting, and the White settlers began to establish farms. Upon establishment of Benton County on September 30, 1836, Osage was deemed a suitable site for the county seat, and the town square was established as the home of county government the following year. Osage was renamed Bentonville in honor of Thomas Hart Benton, a senator from Missouri who strongly supported Arkansas statehood. The Osage post office was established on December 31, 1836 and renamed the Bentonville Post Office On January 3, 1843.
