LITTLE ROCK—The Martin Cemetery Historic Section at Little Rock in Pulaski County has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the country’s official list of historically significant properties.

The Martin Cemetery Historic Section at 10900 I-30 contains burials dating to 1833.

“The historic section of the Martin Cemetery contains the largest collection of historic graves in the cemetery and contains burials of early regional settlers who were active in the settlement and development of southern Pulaski County,” according to the National Register nomination. “This cemetery serves as one of the last known sites associated with the early settlement and development of southwestern Pulaski County and the communities of Fourche and Mabelvale. The farmsteads and other architectural remnants or landscapes associated with the earliest settlement families interred in the Martin Cemetery have been lost.”

The AHPP is the Department of Arkansas Heritage division responsible for identifying, evaluating, registering and preserving the state’s cultural resources. Other divisions are the Arkansas Arts Council, the Delta Cultural Center in Helena, the Old State House Museum, the Arkansas Natural Heritage Commission, the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center, the Historic Arkansas Museum and the Arkansas State Archives.
