Shiloh Cemetery

Oldest cemetery in Greene County. Includes a large monument over Benjamin Crowley's grave. Arriving on the scene in 1820, Crowley was the first prominent white settler in the region. He selected the site for his plantation home because of the upland terrain and a spring, which continues to flow today. Crowley, a veteran of the War of 1812, became an acknowledged leader in northeast Arkansas and strongly supported the creation of Greene County on November 5, 1833. He died in 1842 at age eighty-four, and his gravesite is located within Crowley's Ridge State Park.
