Springfield was founded in 1850 with up to 2000 inhabitants. Its downfall soon commenced, however, owing, in great part, to the foreign miner's tax.

This cemetery, located on a hill above the town, was first used in 1852 and the last burial was in 1997. Of the 34 known graves in the cemetery, nine were children under the age of six.

Many of the graves are unmarked.

The cemetery in recent years has been neglected until Columbia Parlor #258 decided to begin regular maintenance as a parlor activity.
