Springfield was founded as a station of the Orange and Alexandria Railroad in 1847. Springfield remained a rural crossroads until subdivided for suburban development in 1946. Today, however, it is a bustling suburb of Washington, D.C..
The primary appeal of Springfield real estate is its accessibility. The Springfield Interchange boasts three interstates: I-95, I-395, and I-495. In addition, Metro, Virginia Railway Express, and Amtrak all provide service to Springfield real estate owners, and Washington National Airport is just a short drive away.
Springfield Mall, a major retail destination, is currently being overhauled and converted into a mixed-use venue called Springfield Town Center.
Another appeal is the suburb’s excellent schools which make Springfield real estate ideal for families. But that’s not all! Springfield real estate offers an enticing blend of condos, townhouses, and single family homes and a crime index typically much lower than the national average.
