Spring Green has some of the oldest marked graves in the County, many of them weathered and partially buried with time, but still standing in an upright position.  The current Church structure was built about 1950, however, the Church itself has clearly been around a lot longer than that.  The graveyard contains at least a couple of the former Ministers who served there, including Rev. Isaac Alston and Rev. Thomas Plummer.  Reverend Alston, who died in 1919, was a fairly well-known figure in the community having served on several important committees in the area, including as a member of the Board of Directors of the Colored Orphan Asylum in Oxford, North Carolina.
