In 1892 the town contained a blacksmith shop, cotton gin, gristmill, grocery store, post office, and school.

The City of Springtown is on State Highway 199, just miles northwest of Fort Worth and split between both Parker and Wise County. In 1856 Joseph Ward of New Jersey settled on the site, on a creek fed by numerous springs 17 miles northeast of Weatherford. Three years later Ward designed the town square and named the place Littleton's Springs after a pioneer family. In the mid-1870s the name was changed to Springtown following a petition by a majority of the 200 residents. The town's post office has operated continuously since its establishment in June 1875. In 1884 Springtown was incorporated, and the community elected its first mayor. Public schools eventually developed, and in 1936 Springtown High School was incorporated in the Parker County school system. By 1890 the community had four churches, two cotton gins, one steam corn mill, a daily stage to Weatherford costing one dollar, and a triweekly stage to Decatur. Springtown grew from a population of 500 in 1890 to nearly 800 in 1940. From the Great Depression through 1960 the population growth slowed. Afterward, primarily because of an increase in the Springtown-Fort Worth commuter population, the number of residents nearly doubled. Springtown's population has grown to over 2,850 and is developing at a pleasant rate with the popularity of new home building in the area. The city hosts annual events such as Christmas on the Square, a local celebration that encompasses the spirit of the holiday. Our nostalgic historic square is centered on a State of Texas recognized historic site that includes a carefully preserved open air Tabernacle which adds to not only our Christmas celebration, but the other events held in our City’s center annually. One such gathering is our annual Wild West Festival where over 200 vendors arrive sporting their goods, along with a parade and of course, some local western-style showdowns.
