Sarber is by Sarber Lake on the Louisiana and Arkansas Railway eight miles northwest of Jefferson in northern Marion County. It was probably named for the Sarber family, whose descendants still lived in the area in the 1980s. In 1933 the community consisted of one business and an estimated 100 residents, and during the 1930s and 1940s Sarber had a sawmill and a school. The community included several scattered dwellings in 1962, and in 1964 its population was estimated at sixty. The 1983 county highway map showed two businesses at Sarber.
