Springville Real Estate
Springville Real Estate History
First explored in 1776 by Father Silverstre Velez de Escalante, a Jesuit Priest, Springville was originally settled in 1850 by eight pioneer families who crossed the plains to Salt Lake Valley from the East and were subsequently directed by Brigham Young to settle 50 miles further south.
The city was incorporated in 1857 and was originally called Hobble Creek by the early pioneers because their horses were often hobbled (by loosely tying their front feet together) and left to graze along the stream in the lush grass. Later as the town grew, the name was changed to Springville because of the many freshwater springs in the area.
Springville is known as “Art City” due to its strong development of the arts. Springville continues to be a thriving community which has experienced steady growth over the last decade. The population is expected to double over the next two decades in line with the dynamic future expansion of its commercial, office, retail, and industrial sectors along the city’s I-15 corridor.
