Springfield Real Estate

    Springfield is a working class town of around 60,000 residents, with its history rich in the timber industry. It’s home to the 3.5 mile long Springfield Mill Race, a partially natural, partially hand dug waterway that was constructed in 1852 to support the local mills and lumber industry, and now is populated with native fish and wildlife, including spring Chinook salmon and western pond turtles.

    The Washburne Historic District covers more than 29 blocks around Springfield’s downtown, and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1987. The neighborhood includes numerous homes built between the 1890s and 1940s, many with the original residents names still posted on the homes.

    Springfield is believed to be the inspiration behind America’s longest-running sitcom, The Simpsons, and a self-guided tour is in order for any fan of the show. There are many statues and landmarks throughout the Springfield area that pay homage to the show, including a mural of the entire family that was recently painted in downtown Springfield, and a life-size replica of the family sitting on their infamous couch at the Springfield Museum.
