Oak Grove Cemetery in Conway, Arkansas spreads out from a gentle knoll that is dotted with oak, magnolia, cedar, and other kinds of trees. Established in 1880, the cemetery's central focus is a white octagonal gazebo with flower beds maintained by the Faulkner County Master Gardeners. Nearby, a bronze plaque gives the history of the cemetery and a flagpole flies the American flag. The cemetery is approximately two-thirds full; lots are available for purchase.
There are two annual ceremonies at Oak Grove Cemetery. Gone But Not Forgotten, a performance by actors who play the parts of Conway pioneers, is staged in the fall. A confederate re-enactment ceremony in the spring recounts the life of Colonel Allen Rufus Witt who is buried at Oak Grove.
