Mayor’s Message

Welcome to Springfield!  We are happy that you have taken time to visit our website.

We certainly hope that you can come and visit our town and surrounding areas.  Springfield was incorporated in 1838 and abounds with history.  The Livingston Parish Courthouse in the 1800’s still stands in Springfield.  It was built in 1835 and served this booming community that harvested cypress lumber, cotton and then transported it via schooner, down the Natalbany River to New Orleans.

Springfield is also the home to many strawberry farmers.  Even though nearby Ponchatoula hosts their annual Strawberry Festival, the best strawberries most always come from Springfield.  Local farmers make their tasty berries readily available, and they host visitors to their farms. Springfield is a scenic and friendly community. 

We are surrounded by beautiful waterways such as: the Tickfaw River, Natalbany River and Blood River. Just 7 miles from our corporate limits is one of Louisiana’s finest state parks, the Tickfaw State Park“.  Camping and lodging are available.

Beautiful wooded forests and flowing bayous are excellent for scenic and serene visits. Nearby to our town is a championship golf resort, the “Carter Plantation” Golf Community.  If you love golf, you must play at the Carter Plantation.  If you’re looking for a special place to live, Carter Plantation Golf Community is superior.

We know that you enjoy Springfield and our friendly citizens.  We hope that you will come and visit us.
