We at Corwin Ford of Springfield are proud to serve our community. Located in beautiful Springfield, Missouri, we love our city’s reputation of being a “big small town,” combining the cozy, amiable atmosphere of a smaller, tight-knit community with the amenities and fun of living in a big city. With so much to do and see, from Springfield’s awesome school system to delicious local food to outdoor recreation, Springfield is a great place to deliver quality customer service.
Springfield appeared not long after Missouri officially became a state in 1821. The 50 acres that served as the humble beginnings of the community were sold in 1833, and the community flourished. The town known as Springfield was incorporated as soon as 1838. Springfield’s long history includes being a place of significance in the Civil War, helping to give birth to the Wild West era, and being the birthplace of Route 66. There are so many more stories associated with Springfield that we couldn’t do justice in this short description. We encourage you to visit one of the city’s local museums to learn more about its rich history.
The Dickerson Park Zoo, Discovery Center of Springfield, and Butterfly House are only a few family-friendly places to spend a day, alongside museums such as the Laura Ingalls Wilder Home & Museum, Railroad Historical Museum, and Nathan Boone Homestead Historical Site. There’s lots to do outdoors around here, too, like checking out geological phenomena in the Fantastic Caverns or seeing sights at the Little Sac Woods Conservation Area.
There are many free parks and trails around Springfield, and visitors and residents alike can enjoy a cruise on the historically-significant Route 66. There are tons of historic theater venues for live entertainment as well as local art galleries. Plus, great restaurants and local wineries and breweries offer lots of fun for foodies.
