*HISTORICAL MARKER

Mound Cemetery
Desha County,
Arkansas

The historic marker commemorates the importance of cultural activity in southeast Arkansas from the days of the American Indians through the 20th century. Some of the area’s earliest settlers, and before the Civil War, enslaved persons and others, are buried here. Also in unmarked graves are the parents and brother of Rep. I.G. Bailey who served in the Arkansas Legislature from 1885 to 1887. Military veterans and members of historic African American fraternal organizations such as the Mosaic Templars of America, Prince Hall Freemasons, Royal Circle of Friends and Knights and Daughters of Tabor are buried in the cemetery. Added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2008.
