Springer Cemetery is filled with Civil War vets among the other civilians resting here in this small country cemetery. The chapel lends a feeling of spiritual calm and memory of those resting here.

  1. Have been curious for as long as i can remember about this cemetery… nice to see this quaint article… would have most certainly loved to see some inside views of the chapel, whether they were worth seeing or not. really just wanted to say Thank You….


  2. Springer Cemetery Chapel was built sometime n the 1950’s. My father, the late Duane M. Padgett of Westport laid the stone on the structure. He was known for his decorative round stonework. He was proud of that building. I don’t know of a better example of his work.
