PIGEON HILL CEMETERY

Est. 1872

(Possible aka Oak Grove Cemetery)

Union County, Arkansas

Inventoried October 31, 2002, by Janice Holzer

 

Located in Union County, Arkansas, just off of State Hwy. 63 (used to be Hwy. 15 that ran from El Dorado to Moro Bay) & south of Moro Bay State Park which is located on the east side of the Ouachita River, while the cemetery is on the west side of the Ouachita River, along Pigeon Hill Landing Road. Some say this cemetery sits on what was known as Pigeon Hill and some think this is the old cemetery referred to as Pigeon Hill Cemetery. Oak Grove Missionary Baptist Church sits about 300 feet from the cemetery, but the church was not there until the 1930's. The cemetery has recently been cleaned up and surrounded by a chain link fence. There are only a few marked graves, even though an area of about 2 acres has been cleared and fenced in. According to the history of the cemetery there was originally five acres used for the cemetery.
