Springfield is located in the southeast corner of the state. We are a farming and cattle ranching community with plenty of sunshine, and usually have mild winters. Our summers are normally hot and getting hotter each year. Springfield. Map of Springfield
This is not a place where you will find the hustle and bustle of a large city. It is a place where you might find turkey buzzards roosting on the tower by the city hall, or a skunk living under your house.
What I love about living in Southeast Colorado is that you can look across the wide plains and it seems as if you can see forever. You can look up at the stars at night and actually see them and you can see falling stars if you look long enough. You can see a sunset and a sunrise or a full double rainbow on a misty day.
The town of Springfield was originally organized by the Windsor Town Company in 1887 and was said to have begun officially on April 12 of that year. The name was selected because most of the new residents had lived in Springfield, Missouri. At 2:00 P.M. on July 5, 1887, the town of Springfield became a voting precinct and began procedures to apply to the County Courts for incorporation as a town.
