Central Landing

It is certainly an exciting time to be in Conway, Arkansas!  On October 10, the Conway Development Corporation and Jim Wilson Associates of Montgomery, Alabama, announced plans to jointly develop Central Landing on the site of the current (soon to be vacated) Cantrell Field airport just north of the cemetery.  We are excited to have new neighbors and very pleased that the city is considering the possibility of expanding Oak Grove Cemetery to the north with a portion of this land.

Check out these links for more details:

Jim Owen - 1947-2013

The Oak Grove Cemetery Board lost a dear friend and advocate this past week.  Jim Owen, our newest board member, passed away August 1.  While his time working on our board was short, his contributions were outstanding and he will be sorely missed.  Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.
