History & History Related Items

Springville is known throughout the state as "Art City" because it showcases all aspects of fine art. The city was founded in 1850 as Hobble Creek, named for horse hobbles found in the stream that flows through the town. The name was later changed to Springville for the abundant freshwater springs found here. Many areas and attractions still use the name of Hobble Creek, including nearby Hobble Creek Canyon. Springville always encouraged the arts and has a large artistic community to this day.
