Mt. Holly Cemetery

Located in the shadows of the downtown skyscrapers, and next to the roar of a busy freeway, sits the old Mount Holly Cemetery. The cemetery dates back to 1843, and it now contains the final resting place for several notable people in the early history of Little Rock and Arkansas. They include eleven Arkansas governors, thirteen state Supreme Court justices, four United States senators, four Civil War generals, a Pulitzer Prize winning poet and twenty-one Little Rock mayors.


There is a grand collection of old Victorian grave markers here, which makes it a popular place for photographers wanting to take moody black and white pictures.
