History Of the Site

Image title

In 1997, the 81st Arkansas General Assembly authorized the establishment of a state veterans cemetery. On Nov. 11, 2001, the Arkansas State Veterans Cemetery was formally dedicated to serve all honorably discharged veterans. The cemetery, situated on an 82-acre site, is located in North Little Rock at 1501 West Maryland Avenue. The Arkansas Department of Veterans Affairs operates the cemetery to commemorate the military service of our deceased veterans. Our cemetery system provides the visiting family and friends an atmosphere of peacefulness and dignity.

The staff of the Arkansas State Veterans Cemetery is dedicated to providing an honorable place of rest for veterans; to preserve the dignity, beauty, and serenity of this state-of-the-art facility; and to honor all who sacrificed so much, making possible the freedoms we enjoy every day.

We are pleased to receive the support of the Arkansas Veterans Cemetery Foundation (AVCF), a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization that works exclusively with ADVA and the Veterans Cemetery in North Little Rock. The mission of the AVCF is to provide support to the veteran community through commemorations, memorials, ceremonies, and events in memory of our U.S. Armed Services members and their families. This support is made possible through the generosity of volunteers and the charitable contributions of individuals and organizations. Remember your loved one through your charitable contributions at ARVetCemetery.Org with Paypal or by mail at Arkansas Veterans Cemetery Foundation, Post Office Box 6648, Sherwood, AR 72124. To learn about upcoming ceremonies open to the public, volunteer opportunities, and major developments, visit Facebook/ARVetCemetery and online at ARVetCemetery.Org.
