Springfield Cemetery was established in 1841. However it contains graves that were moved here from Springfield's Old First Church including decedents that died as far back as 1641.
The site for Springfield Cemetery was originally known as Martha's Dingle, a site of hills, ravines, brooks, and a natural bird sanctuary. The dingle had once been owned by Martha Ferre. Martha sold the land to Alexander Bliss, a local businessman to raise a dowry. On May 28, 1841 the founding member of Springfield Cemetery purchased the 20 acres of land from Alexander Bliss, or the site known as Martha's Dingle.
