Mt. Harmony Cemetery
The 132nd Annual Decoration of Mt. Harmony Cemetery which is held each year on the second Saturday in May, will be Saturday, May 14th, 2016. Everyone is invited to come for the decoration of graves and also attend the Memorial Service and business meeting at 10 a.m. held in the Mt. Harmony Baptist Church building.
This year’s Memorial Service will be very special in that "Anna Marie Hannah Morris", who is buried at Mt. Harmony, will be present to tell the story about her life and her family. Anna will be portrayed by historical interpreter, Barbara Jacobson. Barbara delighted another audience with Anna’s life story last Fall during South Sebastian County Historical Society’s event, "Buried Treasures", which took place at Mt. Harmony Cemetery.
Contributions for upkeep of the Cemetery may be made at the decoration or mailed to: Sherrell Stallings Buchanan, 4300 South 22nd Street, Fort Smith, AR 72901 We will be looking forward to seeing everyone attend.
