Springfield Township is a middle-class suburb that sits about 10 miles west of Philadelphia. First recognized in 1686, this pristine community has become an affordable substitute for households looking to leave the rising costs of the city.
Like much of the region, Springfield was originally settled by Quakers who arrived in Pennsylvania with William Penn. Amos land, as it was all called back then, was created as a farming community.
On December 9, 1687, settlers began laying sturdy oak planks to create the road that is now known as Springfield Road. Then in 1701, they began Baltimore Pike. Some of these boards can still be found under the pike. It was this same year that construction began on the first Quaker meeting house. The structure was lost to fire in 1737 but was reconstructed. The one that stands in its spot was built in 1851.
Industrialization began in Springfield during the 19th century. Mills began popping up, taking advantage of the creeks in the area. By the 20th century, Springfield’s Baltimore Pike had become a flourishing commercial area, one of the busiest outside of Philadelphia. This area earned the name “The Golden Mile” for its many auto dealerships.
The last century has seen most of Springfield’s farmland sold off to developers which helped usher in the single-family home suburb it is today. Residents of Springfield enjoy an array of local dining and shopping in addition to the massive, two-story Springfield Mall. The town has a reputation for being a friendly community with safe and clean neighborhoods.
