The Lower Oakland Cemetery is on Baxter CR 390, East of Mountain Home

The Lower Oakland Cemetery is located on Baxter CR 390. It can be accessed from either U. S. Highway 62 East of Mountain Home or from State Highway 178 East (Buzzard Roost Road), as CR 390 runs between those two highways. The cemetery is about half the distance between the two, and it is located on the South side of the roadway. The cemetery has about twenty graves identified by name. These date from 1889, although it is probable that there are unmarked graves from prior to that time. The cemetery, which has a sign, appears to be well cared for, maintained, and fenced.

This cemetery has also been called, and is referred to in some sources as the "Old" Oakland Cemetery.
