The historic Town of Springfield is a Statutory Town that is the County seat and most populous town of Baca County, Colorado, United States
The population was 1,562 at the 2000 census. The town was named for Springfield, Missouri, the origin of early settlers to the town. Elevations range from 3800 to 5200 feet in Baca County.
According to the Plainsman Herald from March 1988, the Town was settled in 1888 or 1889 by Frank Pierce Tipton (DPOB 10 Dec 1852, Gallopolis, Ohio) who had travelled to Springfield from Moulton, Iowa via Springfield, MO in 1886 or 1887 in a covered wagon. Frank Tipton secured the title to 80 acres (320,000 m2) which was the original town site.
