Springfield Oregon is Officially the Namesake for “The Simpsons” Legendary Town

Matt Groening, creator of the Simpsons, recently announced the true town which inspired the name for the Simpsons’ Springfield is none other than Springfield, Oregon. Groening, a native of Oregon, revealed the answer in an interview with Smithsonian Magazine, posted online today.

Springfields across the country can no longer debate who is the inspiration for the famous town of Homer, Bart, Lisa, Marge, Maggie, Moe, and others.

Does knowing the answer take away from the charm of “not knowing”?
