Location: Hwy 19 east from Hwy 12. First road to the right (south) is Lodi-Springfield Road. The road makes a sharp turn to the left and becomes Woodland Street. The cemetery is on that corner.
This is a very old and very well kept cemetery. Town of Springfield minutes indicate that a tree was donated by the Knights of Columbus and planted on Arbor Day, 2002. It was also noted in this meeting that this tree would be in addition to the bench and trees donated in the memory of Leonard Meier. This seems to indicate that the Town of Springfield maintains this cemetery. There have been no other burials since 1932.
There is a marker that has the cemetery name and established date of 1848. On the back of the stone is this narrative: "Kohlmann Cemetery a/k/a Methodist/Yankee/Kohlmann Buckel was created as the first town cemetery in the Town of Springfield, when Charles Kohlmann was murdered not far from this spot. Many of the towns first settlers are buried here. Their journey to this resting spot was not an easy one, but their spirit and fortitude live on in all those who follow."
Emily Fichter and I visited this cemetery on Jul 24, 2005.
