Crowley’s Ridge State Park Sign


“This was the first cemetery on Crowley’s Ridge.

 It was founded by the Methodist Episcopal South Church led by missionary Reverend Isaac Brookfield and Benjamin Crowley.

After the church burned, the cemetery was neglected and markers were lost.

The Civilian Conservation Corps, between 1933 and 1937, laid out this cemetery and surveyed the county’s oldest residents to recreate the list of settlers buried here.”  Click Here to View Sign



Monument placed by Arkansas Centennial Commission, Arkansas History Commission

“The first sessions of the county court in Greene County, created in 1833, and named for Nathanial Greene, a general of the Revolutionary War, was held at the house of Benjamin Crowley, the pioneer settler of Crowley’s Ridge, in whose honor this extraordinary strip of plateau land is named.”
