Cemetery notes and/or description:
Founded in 1860, the Blue Springs Cemetery has the distinction of being Nebraska's Oldest Recorded Cemetery, registered on January 25, 1862. The first burial was Allen R. Johnson age 8 years and 2 months. Allen drowned in the Big Blue River on September 25, 1857, his re-interment in what was then known as the Blue Springs Methodist Cemetery (northeast corner of today's cemetery) was shortly after the Cemetery was established. The grave is marked with a “First Burial” monument in the Original Addition.

The Blue Springs Cemetery Association has devoted much time and effort to maintain the beauty and upkeep of the Cemetery. The perpetual effort includes repairs to the chapel and antique wrought iron fencing, planting trees, street improvements and onsite directory updates.
