Little Rock National Cemetery, established in 1868, is located two miles southeast of the State Capitol in Little Rock in Pulaski County. The main entrance is on Confederate Boulevard at the center of the east side and is protected by a double iron gate, with a pedestrian gate on each side. There is an additional double iron gate entrance on the south side at East 26th Street. The cemetery was originally enclosed by a three-foot high fieldstone wall constructed in 1869. In 1921 and 1929 , portions of this wall were replaced by iron fencing. Later, additional sections of the north boundary were replaced by chain link fencing. A 644-foot section of wall on the southeast boundary and the wall along the north boundary are the only portions of the original perimeter that remain. The Oakland Cemetery, a city-owned cemetery, is located adjacent to the national cemetery near the northeast corner. The main entry road of the national cemetery extends approximately one-half the length of the cemetery ending at a circle where the flagpole is located. The administration building is located south of the main entrance roadway, and the service building is directly behind the administrative building. A committal service shelter is situated to the north of the main entrance. Graves are marked with upright marble headstones, except the Section 15A, which is marked with flat granite markers.
