Knights of Pythias (African American) Cemetery
Craighead County,
Arkansas

Moved from Memory Gardens Cemetery to Knights of Pythias Cemetery July 7, 1998 This African American cemetery, dedicated in the 1950's, was destroyed upon construction of the NEA Clinic on Parker Road. The salvageable remains were reburied in the Knights of Pythias Cemetery located on Strawfloor Road. A monument was erected above the mass grave of 16 coffins moved to this cemetery. The Black Cultural Heritage Center of Jonesboro houses a display of the items found after digging through the rubble. Articles of clothing, broken stones, hardware and pieces of the lining of caskets were recovered by the group.


Approx. 1890 - 1962 (I'm not sure what the stands for, could be the dates they had originally been interred?)
