SPECIAL COVIN-19 NOTICE and DECORATION DAY 2020
Because of the COVIN-19 and the knowledge that most of our Walnut Grove family are in the "Above 60 group" the board has determined that Decoration for 2020 has been cancelled.
Please feel free to come to the cemetery anytime you desire (adding new flowers and have peace time with your family.) However we ask you to maintain the suggested 6 ft social distancing. If you have a cough of any kind please wear a face covering.
Any contributions to the General Cemetery Fund or Long Term Care Fund should be mailed to Janice Mitchel, 1464 Welcome Home Rd, Hector, AR 72843
And please pray for our health care workers and other required workers that are helping to keep America safe with reasonable food supplies and other important supplies.

Near Hector, Arkansas - Founded 1898
From Hector, Pine Street the road to
Appleton runs due east through rolling pastures. Located 1.9 mile from Hector,
Walnut Grove Road runs straight
north toward Oak Mountain. As that road descends into the valley of Dare Creek, a cemetery spreads out on the last rise before the creek.
A shed framed with cedar poles stands at the western end of the cemetery and a pair of stone pillars is arched with a sign that reads “Walnut Grove”.
