Mount Holly Cemetery

Often referred as Westminster Abbey of Arkansas, Mount Holly Cemetery is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is the final resting place for 11 Arkansas governors, 14 state Supreme Court justices, five Confederate Generals, and numerous outstanding military heroes. The cemetery is just south of downtown located on a four-square-block site, remaining in its original twenty-acre size. A number of grave markers with dates predating the formation of Mount Holly represent reinterments. The cemetery’s old rose bushes, mature trees, handcrafted signs and styles of its structures give Mount Holly a look of understated Victorian elegance. The ambience is further reflected by grave markers exhibiting iconographic motifs and epitaphic material. Mount Holly’s collection of cemetery furniture includes a number of very old cast iron pieces and ornate iron fencing encloses several older lots. A handsome nineteenth century cast iron fountain is quite appealing.
