This small rural cemetery is fenced and has a sign over the driveway gate. .There is a walk thru gate that is unlocked, and a Historical Marker on the grounds. The graves are very scattered along the backside of the property. One antique fence surrounds a family plot. It was slightly overgrown at the time we visited. Two taller headstones are located on the property along with several homemade crosses. Contact information for this cemetery is located in a mailbox adjacent to the front gate. Cedar Springs has plenty of room for future interments.
