Springville is a community that promises – and delivers – excitement and adventure. Nestled in the foothills of the Southern Sierra Nevada Mountain Range, this lively neighborhood has a small-town feel with a rural vibe. It sits at an elevation of 1,000 feet and is the final pit stop for visitors heading to the Giant Sequoia National Monument.
Springville was originally called Daunt, after the settler William Daunt set up shop in the area in 1860 and named it after himself. In 1911, the town was renamed Springville for the many natural springs in the area. The community of Springville covers a vast foothill area with the Village itself covering approximately 4.2 miles.
You can find Springville in the Tulare County, on the east side of Porterville and along the Highway 190.
