In 1883 Mr. & Mrs. F. M. Strawn came to Polk County to a place known as Bulger, Arkansas.  At this location was a general store, post office and church, with its nearby cemetery.  The church was the Hope Methodist Church.  The cemetery was quite large in 1883 and it is believed that part of the cemetery has been lost and is not contained in the present area of the Bulger Cemetery.

The post master at that time was a Mr. Stinnett.  The post office stayed in use until 1897.  School was conducted in the Hope Methodist Church.  There are about one hundred graves with no names or dates.  In consideration of the facts herein stated, there was a Bulger Cemetery in existence before 1833.

Please visit the Polk County Library.  There is a genealogy section at the library.  Or, check www.FindaGrave.com as the Polk County Genealogy Society (Mary L Broderick)  is attempting to put all of this information on the FindAGrave site along with the Markers for the Graves.  It is a massive undertaking.
