Moscow Cemetery
Nevada County,
Arkansas

Arkansas Civil War Sesquicentennial Commission

Moscow was a village and trade center on the road between Camden and Washington when the Civil War broke out.
The Moscow Methodist Church had been established as early as 1842, but the oldest marked grave in the adjacent cemetery is dated 1864.
The Cairo and Fulton Railroad founded Prescott in 1873, which led to Moscow's decline, though the Moscow Cemetery served as the burial ground for the new city until 1880, and some of the area's most prominent citizens are buried here.
Moscow served as a Methodist Protestant Church in the late 19th century.
