History of Springfield
Like most of Delaware County, Springfield was settled by the Quakers in 1682. The township was originally named Amosland and was renamed after a large spring (in a field). In 1701, construction on Baltimore Pike began, create a new path to Philadelphia. Made of wooden planks, Baltimore Pike has become a famous thoroughfare. Some of the wooden planks are still underneath the current Baltimore Pike.
Industrialization soon took hold of Springfield when many mills were erected along its many creeks. Baltimore Pike became the most commercialized area outside of Philadelphia in the early 20th century. In fact, a part of it is named the “golden mile” for it many auto dealerships. There was a housing boom, beginning in 1949 with the development called Stoney Creek. This provided affordable housing for families of the “baby boom” generation and soldiers returning from WWII in the 1950s.
Springfield is also the birthplace of many famous people, such as artist Benjamin West, rock musician Robert Hazard, Congressman Joe Sestak, athlete Gertie Dunn (All American Girls Professional Baseball Team) and sports team executive and owner Pat Croce. The township was incorporated in 1686 when Peter Lester was appointed the constable.
Many streets are named after its notable citizens, such as Kennerly, Thomas, Beatty, and Worrell (there is a Worrell Elementary School in the adjacent town of Broomall).
