Quality Ridge Cemetery on State Hwy 201 N formerly called "New" Trivitt Cemetery

The Quality Ridge Cemetery is located on State Highway 201 North, approximately 4 miles North of Mountain Home, at the intersection of Baxter CR 483. The cemetery was established when the Trivitt Cemetery, Cockrums Cemetery No. 2, Tripp Cemetery, and Geans Cemetery were relocated from the lake basin when Norfork Dam was built in the 1940's. The United States Army Corp of Engineers named it the "New Trivitt Cemetery", but sometime later it became known as the Quality Ridge Cemetery. There are many unmarked graves with no dates. This is still an active cemetery, and it is well cared for and maintained.  There is no fence, and I did not see a sign for the cemetery either.
