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.
