The small church located at this site is called Springhill Primitive Baptist Church but the cemetery is called simply Springhill Cemetery. The grounds are well kept and the cemetery is fenced with a wide entrance gate. Surrounding the cemetery on three sides are tall oaks, pines, and flowering dogwood trees.
To reach the church/cemetery from Flomaton, get on Hwy-31 and head south toward Atmore. At the Flomaton High School, south side, turn left and go to a 4-way stop. At the stop turn right onto College Street. Stay on College Street, cross the rail tracks and continue through an up-scale residential area to the summit of a long, low-grade hill. At the top of the hill the street becomes Old Atmore Road. Look for the landmark tall microwave tower, at which point the Old Atmore Road will juncture with Tulip Road/Tulip Street. Continue southward for about 3.5 miles and there will be a street called Tom Shivers Road that "T's" into Old Atmore Road. A short distance of 200 yards beyond Tom Shivers will be the church and cemetery on the left.
If Driving from Atmore on Hwy-31, the best route is to enter the township of Flomaton and turn right at the high school and proceed to College Street.
