History / Biographical
The village of Springfield was pioneered in the early part of the nineteenth century by men and women eager to clear the land and establish homes. Early names for the village were Byrns (Burns) Creek and Clunas. In 1855, it was given the name Springfield, because the early buildings were in a field through which ran a number of flowing springs. The community grew and experienced the boom brought about chiefly by the expansion of the railroads. In modern days, the village is situated in the centre of a prosperous farming community.
The village of Springfield was amalgamated with the Townships of South Dorchester and Malahide on January 1, 1998. It is now located in the Township of Malahide.
