Cold Springs Cemetery is owned by Cold Springs Cemetery Association.
During the War of 1812. A small detachment of soldiers from the U. S. Arsenal at Batavia were en-route to the Niagara Frontier. They camped at the Cold Springs. On the hill above near where the gate to Cold Springs is now located there was a log tavern kept by Charles Wilbur. Whether the 12 soldiers who died there that day over-indulged in whiskey or whether they had some fatal malady will probably never be known. They were buried on the hill above the Cold Springs and their unmarked graves became the nucleus around which other burials were made by settlers in the area. The first civilian burial began in 1815.
Cold Springs Cemetery was eventually incorportated Mar 7, 1840. There are maps that date back to 1853. It was reincorporated in 1971 as The Cold Springs Cemetery Association.
