Arkansas Cemeteries


Nelson Cemetery

Saline County, Arkansas

Submitted October 26, 2003, by Anthony Rushing


The City of Benton and developers of the Long Hills subdivision are possibly about to close off the only access to this cemetery by building houses right up against the wall of the cemetery. The small lane that runs along the property edge has been there for many, many years.


Update Anthony Rushing - Dec 7, 2003

Well it seems as if we have won this one. I got a call from Longhills Development INC, and they assured me there will be access provided of at least 15 feet to get to the cemetery. At least we have assurance this historic cemetery will be open!
