What to know

When Arkansas was admitted to the Union as the 25th state on June 15, 1836, James Sevier Conway (1796-1855) took office as Arkansas’s first governor. This 11-acre historic site preserves Conway’s final resting place, where a biographical marker details the life of Governor Conway is featured in the park. The cemetery was the family plot located at the former Conway home site, a large cotton plantation named Walnut Hill. There are no campsites or visitor services available at this state historic site.
