Antioch Missionary Baptist Church Cemetery

The Antioch Missionary Baptist Church Cemetery is located at 500 North McKinney Road in Sherrill, Arkansas, behind the Antioch Missionary Baptist Church. The earliest graves are of emancipated slaves, originally enslaved on the Good Hope Plantation in South Carolina, but moved to Jefferson County, Arkansas in 1860. Reverenced Louis Mazique, a leader in the community, was the earliest documented burial, in 1885. The cemetery continues to be used today, although infrequently.

The cemetery was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2009.
