Chapel Cemetery is located south of Hugo on Broadway Street. There is no
access from U.S. 70 to the cemetery. Follow Broadway Street south from
downtown Hugo. When you pass under US 70 the cemetery will be on your left.
Entrance is at the south end of the cemetery where the road curves right to
cross the railroad tracks. The road is paved and the cemetery
is well maintained. Oldest recorded burial is 1874.
The cemetery is divided into 7
and the numbering system shown is the one used by the cemetery
association. The sections were recently subdivided into blocks which are
indicated on the map but not in the enumeration. The oldest burials are
located in Sections 1, 2 & 4 with the northwestern part of Section 2 being the
original Springs family cemetery.
Springs Chapel began as a private
burial plot by Levi Spring for his family in 1874. During the early days of
Hugo it was used quite extensively although being on an Indian allotment
no clear title could be obtained. In 1919 the Secretary of the
Interior removed all restrictions on the land and along with an additional 40
acres, purchased by Bailey Spring, the cemetery we now know as Springs
Chapel began to take shape.
Springs Chapel is a very pretty
cemetery and the cemetery association keeps it well maintained.
