The Oak Grove Cemetery Board has embarked on a major project, the construction of an in-ground columbarium area. Landscape architect Barry Williams of Crafton Tull is in charge of the design. This project has been in the works for some time, and as soon as plans are finalized, construction will begin. The columbarium garden is to be constructed southeast of the gazebo, which is located in the heart of the cemetery and was donated some years ago by the Robinette family. We are very pleased that Patricia Thessing, immediate past president, remains involved in the planning and fundraising for the columbarium project. We hope you'll watch here as plans develop and construction begins!
Oak Grove Cemetery is an active 24 acre cemetery located in Conway, Faulkner County, Arkansas. The cemetery’s entrance is at the east end of Bruce Street, which was named to honor George W. Bruce, a Conway pioneer who, in 1880, served as the first president of the Oak Grove Cemetery Association. The Historic Section of Oak Grove is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This 10-acre portion is the final resting place of most of Conway's citizens from its earliest era.
