Springtown Texas 1859

In fact, back in 1859 Springtown Texas name was Littleton Springs. Here 25 cold springs were flowing from the base of a rolling hillside. A gentleman from New Jersey by the name of Captain Joseph Ward had just arrived in Parker County. He chose a spot he was fascinated with because the beautiful landscape was so accommodating to a variety of wildlife. Providing shelter for deer, panthers, even wild turkeys were elm and oak trees decorating the countryside.

Springtown Texas Growth

Springtown Texas. Ultimately, Ward decided to establish a town here and began laying the groundwork. There were some road blocks along the way. The Civil War for one. However, Ward did not let this hinder the development.

Springtown Texas auctionAlong with growth came the changing of Littleton Springs’s name to Springtown. Eighteen years after Ward’s arrival Springtown was a bustling town including: 2 blacksmith shops, 3 cotton gins, 2 general stores, 1 hotel and a school. Then another seven years later Springtown, TX became incorporated.

Eventually Springtown, TX became the area’s educational hub. Largely due to the city founding two education facilities. The College Hill Institute and the Springtown Male and Female Institute. Through the years the Male and Female Institute became the Springtown High School. College Hill Institute became the City Hall after moving to the town square. Renovations were made to the building adding an open area for larger gatherings which became called the “Tabernacle”.

Springtown Texas Building

Springtown Texas After spending shortly more than 50 years in its location on the town square, City Hall and its “Tabernacle” were moved. With time came the building of a new “Tabernacle”. Today it is a local gathering place for numerous community activities such as funerals, graduations or weddings, to name a few.

Indeed the population grew generously. From 500 in the late 1800’s to today’s estimate of more than 2,000. All the while Springtown, TX has been keeping and sharing the characteristic of hospitality. Welcoming visitors with a smile and new families to town with open arms.
