Evergreen is one of the largest historic cemeteries in Northwest Arkansas. Evergreen has over 3,000 interments, some of them dating back to the 1840s. Numerous notable people from Arkansas history are buried at Evergreen, including Senator J. William Fulbright, Governor Archibald Yell, industrialist Lafayette Gregg, and educator Sophia Sawyer.

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.
