The roots of Sacred Heart Of Mary can be traced back to the 1850’s where its community was comprised of German immigrants. After fleeing from their homeland because of oppression from the Prussians, they settled in the colony of Springhill. The city would later become Barling. Though there are no known records of when the church officially became Sacred Heart of Mary older parishioners claim that its name has always been Sacred Heart of Mary. 

Sacred Heart’s first church was a barn built around 1900. Fast forward almost 80 years, and our present building was completed in February of 1979. In addition to Sacred Heart’s main building, a parish center was constructed containing classrooms, a kitchen, and an apartment for the pastor (which would later become the parish office).

Sacred Heart of Mary Cemetery

St. Mary's Cemetery, as some call it, is located on Roberts Blvd. east of I-549 on lands that previous belonged to the US Government at Fort Chaffee, AR.  This is a private burial ground for Sacred Heart of Mary Catholic Church of Barling, AR, established under the St. Benedictine Order in about 1902.  Two acres of land was originally donated by the Weindel family for a church and cemetery.  In 1904 the church building was moved to the present loaction and the burial ground has remained in its original loaction.  The church retains the right to sell the cemetery lots and approve the individual's right of burial in this sacred ground.

It is duly noted that the family members of the "Prince of the Hangman," George Maledon, are buried in this cemetery.  Mr. George Maledon was the special executioner deputy federal marshal who hanged about sixty individuals sentenced by the federal Judge Isaac Parker,  The burial of George Maledon took place in Johnson County, TN in 1911.
