Inscription.  Members of the religious Society of Friends were instrumental in the founding and development of Springboro.

This plot contains the remains of Springboro founder Jonathan Wright (1782- 1855), a Quaker leader who donated part of his land holdings to his Meeting for this cemetery.

Also buried here are other members of the Wright family including Jonathan’s father, Joel, who platted Louisville, Kentucky, and Columbus and Dayton, Ohio. Other burials include Revolutionary War veteran John Mullen, and pioneer orchard magnate, Jesse Wilson; and several African Americans who had no burial site of their own.

The Friends Meeting House of Springboro once stood inside the front gate.

After the Springborough Meeting was laid down, the plot was Maintained by the Miami Monthly Meeting in Waynesville, until 1996, when the cemetery was deeded to the City of Springboro.
