When Arkansas was admitted to the Union as the 25th state on
June 15, 1836, James Sevier-Conway took office as Arkansas' first
governor. This 11 acre historic site preserves Conway's final resting
place. The cemetery is the family plot which was located at Walnut
Hill, the former Conway homesite and cotton plantation.
Forty grave sites lie within the graveyard.
(NOTE: There are no camping or visitor services available.)
From Bradley, travel two miles west on Ark. 160 to the community of
Walnut Hill. At Walnut Hill, turn south on the county road and go
1/2 mile to the park.
