Pilgrim Rest Cemetery

Location Class:
Year Built: 1800's | Year Abandoned: 1980's
Status: Endangered
Photojournalist: Michael Schwarz

This cemetery lies next to an active church in Scott Arkansas. Most of the forest behind the church has gobbled up the headstones, and many vandals and thefts have been in and out of the cemetery leaving only partial memories behind. There once was almost 80 graves here, but now there only seems to be about 20 left. There are now little stakes with orange tags that mark where there once was a headstone around the cemetery.
