Oakland Cemetery was established in 1863 when the city of Little Rock purchased a 160-acre estate in order to accommodate the Civil War dead. Through the years, this 160-acre estate has been carved into 7 distinct cemeteries: Oakland, Fraternal, 1-acre Confederate, 11-acre Confederate, National, Jewish Reform and Jewish Conservative. Owned by the City of Little Rock, the Oakland, Fraternal, and Confederate cemeteries are run by a city-appointed board. Oakland & Fraternal Cemetery Park was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2010.
