Located 30 miles north of Birmingham adjacent to Interstate 59, Springville is attracting newcomers to good schools, well-developed recreational facilities, and a beautiful countryside. Many new-home developments are cropping up in close proximity to Springville, taking advantage of good commutes and Springville's commercial conveniences. In contrast, Springville showcases the historic charm of turn-of-the-century buildings and historic homes. The community sponsors a number of popular events throughout the year that feature antique cars, musical concerts, and fireworks shows. The Homestead Hollow country fair and arts festival has been attracting regional visitors to its three-day extravaganza for the past 25 years. Around the four seasons, Homestead Hollow offers a recreation of a pioneer village nestled on 17 acres of spacious grounds graced by streams and mature shade trees. Named for the large spring that is now covered and supplies the town's water supply, Springville still enjoys the runoff stream that flows through the heart of downtown to join Canoe Creek and eventually Coosa River.
