Mount Holly Cemetery is like an aging, but gracious Southern lady. She is in need of ongoing maintenance! Funds raised at the picnic will help maintain this historic landmark. We will walk in Little Rock’s historical footsteps at the Annual Mount Holly Cemetery Picnic. Dating to 1843, but with grave sites that date much earlier, Mount Holly is a “living and breathing” historical treasure in the heart of Little Rock’s Historic District.
Guests will have the opportunity to join in a historic tour of the cemetery, featuring famous and infamous residents of Mount Holly Cemetery or guests can enjoy a naturalist tour!
You are invited to join us for a picnic on the grounds of Mount Holly Cemetery,
1200 South Broadway, Little Rock, Arkansas, on the last Sunday of April.
This is our annual fundraiser to raise funds to maintain this historic landmark.
Tickets are $75.00 for adults, $25.00 for children under 12.

Held the second Tuesday of October, Tales of the Crypt is an annual Mount Holly Event. Under the direction of Fred Boosey & Tamara Zinck, drama students from Parkview Arts & Science Magnet High School are each given a person buried in the cemetery to research. They then prepare short monologues or dialogues, complete with period costumes, to be performed in front of the researched person's grave. Award-winning local costumer Debi Manire will once again provide the wonderful historical characters' costumes. Audiences are led through the cemetery from grave to grave by guides with candles. Although it takes place around the same time as the American holiday Halloween, the event is meant to be historic rather than spooky. Many local teachers award extra credit to students who attend.
Mount Holly Cemetery is located at 1200 South Broadway, Little Rock, Arkansas
