St. Peter's Cemetery is a historic rural cemetery in eastern Jefferson County, Arkansas. It is located east of Pine Bluff, Arkansas, on the south side of Morgan Drive, about 2 miles (3.2 km) west of Arkansas Highway 88. The 2-acre (0.81 ha) cemetery was established in 1827, and is one of the few surviving remnants of the former community of New Gascony, one of the county's oldest communities. The cemetery has lain dormant since 1927, and is maintained by volunteers.[2]

The cemetery was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1998.[1]
