The Springboro Universalist Church was built on the north end of town in 1842 on land purchased from the Gregg family. The property is shown on Lot 5 on the 1867 wall map but is now known as out lot 6 in Warren County Records.  The cemetery was located in a 1/2 acre lot behind the church.   The 1st known burial was that of Nicholas Fye in 1837 and by 1850 the cemetery was said to be 40% full.  In 1905 the congregation built a new stone church at 300 South Main Street but the membership fell off to 13 people by 1920 and the church was disbanded.  Known burials in the cemetery date from 1837 to 1867 although other records indicate the last burial occurred in 1954.
