Spring Hill School and Cemetery

On a whim, we lit out on an unfamiliar backroad this past Saturday and found the old Schoolhouse at Spring Hill. The stone in the building appears to have come from the same quarry (or pasture) as those used in the construction of the old Agri-Building at Violet Hill.
Across the road from the old school is the Spring Hill Cemetery where the family plots of Yanceys, Couches, Cliffts, Browns, and Wisemans can be found. There are two ex-confederates buried here...one a member of the 5th Arkansas Cavalry. Unlike names found at other cemeteries recently, we have been unable to dig up any info on any of the names found at Spring Hill.
