Antioch is located on Highway 31, fives miles northwest of Beebe. Tornadoes and fires have played havoc with local church records. The White County Historical Society reported in its 1967 edition of White County Heritage that “the first church was a log structure across the road from the present Presbyterian-Methodist-Baptist church and a few hundred yards behind the present store [near the old gin site].” It was built on the 9.13 acres of land owned by the Presbyterians who were here in the late 1800s. This church was called Macedonia. The old part of the Antioch Cemetery is also a part of that plat. The Historical Society published a detailed history of the Antioch church in the ‘67 Heritage. At that time the three denominations worked loyally together yet retained a separate identity. On the first Sunday of each month the Baptist had their pastor. On the second and fourth Sundays the pulpit was filled by a Methodist preacher. The Presbyterian pastor delivered the third Sunday message.
The cemetery was surveyed in April 2000 by Historical Society member Tommy H. Treadway, and updated from newspaper obituaries by Zelda Dawson of the Society in September 2001 and January 2002. An update was made by Society member Leroy Blair after he and his wife Ellen visited the cemetery several times in 2002.
