Old Seminary Cemetery is located northwest of Stephens, AR about 0.2 mile from the intersection of County Roads 104 and 112.  Jerry McKelvy of Camden, AR reports that this abandoned cemetery, which is about one acre in size, is overgrown with brush and trees including some large oak trees.  The monuments are in good shape, but you have to look closely to see them in the underbrush.
