Town History

Springfield was first settled in 1717 by the Briant family by way of Hackensack. The town became primarily populated by farmers and lumber workers. During the Revolutionary War the enemy found these goods to be of great value and ransacked the town on multiple occasions. The British efforts were finally ceased in New Jersey at the famous Battle of Springfield in June of 1780. This was one of the last major encounters of the Revolutionary War and resulted in a much needed Continental victory. Most of the town was burned to the ground during this battle, but the Cannon Ball House still stands today and has been converted into a museum. A Continental Soldier statue stands guard out front of Springfields First Presbyterian Church, burned down and rebuilt using the original remaining structure. This statue is regarded as the smallest state park in New Jersey.
