Springville Real Estate
Originally named Hobble Creek, the city of Springville was incorporated on February 13, 1853. The nearby canyon stream and golf course have retained the name of Hobble Creek, but the town eventually took on the name of Springville after the nearby Fort Springville. Discovered in 1776 by a Franciscan padre, the area was finally settled around 1850 by eight pioneer families arriving from the east.
This beautiful little town is nestled in the foothills of The Wasatch Range and lies east of Utah Lake. It is a thriving community that has seen steady growth over the years.
