Springfield The Coast

The county seat since 1799, Springfield still retains ties to railroad and sawmill industries. Remnants of the community’s traditional “square town plan” still exist around the historic Courthouse. Tour the historic jail, home to the local museum, to learn more about Springfield and the county’s unique heritage.

In the heart of one of the Southeast's oldest yet fastest growing counties, the City of Springfield offers a unique blend of hometown hospitality, rich regional history and modern day convenience. Just north of both Savannah and Rincon,  Springfield serves as the county seat of Effingham County and a vital part of its heritage.

Springfield's Main Street winds its way through storefronts that years ago provided patrons with hitching posts for horses and carriages. Historic homes with wide, welcoming porches perfect for family gatherings peek from behind stately, century-old oak trees. The original 1908 Courthouse and other historical structures still stand proudly nearby as reminders of our town's early beginnings. While in town, take in a movie or concert at the newly restored historic Mars Theatre and view the stained glass in the Holy Trinity Lutheran Church (built 1909).
