The Arkana Cemetery is alongside State Hwy 201 South, just West of CR 69

The Arkana Cemetery is located on State Highway 201 South of Mountain Home, just NW of the Baxter CR 69 intersection. It is adjacent to Hwy 201 and easily found. This is an active, well maintained cemetery. Known burials date from the very late 1800's, but it is probable that earlier unmarked graves are located here as well.
