Recent News:

A preliminary map and database of Evergreen Cemetery are now on-line. These allow you to search the cemetery information collected by students and volunteers who have participated in the Evergreen Cemetery Recording Project. The map and database form a 'virtual cemetery' which you can search to find specific individuals or cemetery features at Evergreen. The database and map are incomplete and still in the testing phase, and I welcome any suggestions or comments. Click here for an introduction and gateway to the database.

Evergreen Cemetery Recording Project:
Evergreen Cemetery was recently awarded a grant from the Arkansas Humanities Council to aid in a project to record Evergreen Cemetery. To read about the recording project and the Humanities Council Grant, click here.

New Fence and Monuments Restored:
A recent fundraising effort, led by Dr. Harvey Smith of the University of Arkansas, raised $55,000 to install a fence around the boundary of Evergreen Cemetery. The work was done by Modern Fence and Supply Company, Inc. which also donated four entrance gates to the project. You can read a newspaper article about the new fence here. Numerous toppled monuments have recently been re-set, thanks to the Emerson Monument Company, which generously donated time and expertise for this project. You can view pictures of Emerson personnel righting a monument here.
