The Lone Rock Cemetery is just off Push Mountain Road

The Lone Rock Cemetery is located on Lone Rock Drive off Push Mountain Road in the Lone Rock Community. Take Push Mountain Road South from the White River/Norfork area about 6 miles. Lone Rock Drive will intersect on the left (East) side of the roadway. It is a dirt road. Follow Lone Rock Drive about a mile and the cemetery will be on the right, a short distance off the road. The earliest known burial is from the year 1900, but earlier unmarked graves are probable. This continues to be an active cemetery, but care and maintenance seemed to be lacking on my last visit there.

NOTE:  This cemetery was mowed and weed-eated by Baxter County Jail Inmates on October 5, 2011.
