  • Description

    A quick drive through Springtown, in Upper Bucks County, Pa., is all you need to take in its main street lined with historical homes, a few old churches, the beautiful Springtown Inn, the post office (Springtown had the area’s first post office in 1806) and historical store fronts that speak to the bustling center of commerce this little town once was. But spend a little more time cruising the country roads that surround the village, and you’re in for a treat, with some pristine rural vistas, absolutely gorgeous farmsteads with fieldstone houses and barns — Springfield Township was known for having some of the best farmland in the area —  a covered bridge here and there, and small villages scattered about Springfield Township.

    By the 1840s, there were six villages in the township. With changes in agricultural production and industry being centered in Allentown, Bethlehem and Easton, the local economy shifted in the early to mid-1900s. Three villages remain: Springtown, Pleasant Valley and Zion Hill. For those who are house-hunting in the area and want to consider Bucks County areas adjacent to Springfield Township, Durham, Haycock, Nockamixon, Milford and Richland townships abut the township.

    Now something of a sleepy village but with a tight-knit community behind it, Springtown has expanded only a a bit in the past 25 years with a minimal amount of newer construction homes. Despite its proximity to the heart of the Lehigh Valley and New Jersey via I-78, it remains a laid-back, stable community with an active volunteer fire company and other organizations based in the small town. The annual Halloween parade is a classic small-town event capped off with cider and other refreshments. Cook’s Creek, a high-value waterway, runs through Springtown. Grist and saw mills were located along the creek, and some still stand. The Cook’s Creek Watershed Association is dedicated to preserving and protecting the waterway.

    Children in the public-school system attend Palisades School District. Some parochial and private options exist in the region, though they are limited.

    We’ll close with a bit of Springfield Township trivia: The original “Lassie” is buried in Springfield Township. Author Eric Knight lived in the area when he wrote “Lassie Come Home,” and so this much-loved tale has its roots in Bucks County.
