Reportedly in the 1840's, the area now occupied by Evergreen Cemetery
was part of the John Thomas family farm. It was used as a private burial
ground by the Thomas family until 1870, when Washington Lodge Number 1
of the Free and Accepted Masons and Lodge Number 15 of the Independent
Order of Odd Fellows bought the property for a place of interment for
lodge members and for the Fayetteville [Washington county, Arkansas]
community in general. The Masons and Odd Fellows owned and managed
Evergreen Cemetery until 1915 when they deeded the cemetery to the
Evergreen Cemetery Association. [Cemetery has been expanded from its
original four acres]
