It's been said (by Bruce Townley, among others)
in the USA has a Springfield.
states have a Springfield
or a close cousin;
following states are Springfield-deficient:
Arizona, Connecticut, Hawaii, Iowa, Kansas,
Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota*,
Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Utah, Washington, Wyoming.
*North Dakota does have a Springfield Township, but it's mostly an empty spot on the map.
(Data from searches on MapQuest)
To make up for this deficit,
some states have more than
one Springfield; the number if more than one
in parentheses in the map links below.
When I created this page, many years ago now, MapQuest listed 52 Springfields,
five West Springfields, four East Springfields,
four North Springfields, one South Springfield,
one Springfield Crossroads, one Springfield Plantation,
and one Springfield Gardens (not too far from me
in Long Island, New York).
However, a recent general search at Mapquest revealed only a small number of Springfields, which seems rather strange. Accordingly, the numbers listed below may not agree with the current mapping data.
As of 2020, the US Postal Service list of the most common city and post office names within the Unites States includes 34 Springfields.

areas of the Ozarks are nearby; such as Silver Dollar City; Shepherd
