Howz the town? I looked on census.gov and it doesn't look bad but I can't find much else about it. Is there a cable tv company there for internet access?

Who is the local supermarket chain? Opinion on quality of life?

Thank you !

Springfield is great I enjoyed it so much I bought my house there. Bardstown is a good place for the butcher, springfield has a supermarket there but its local. A few country resturaunts which is nice. Lots of real estate there as well. They have a community airport if you are a flyer. There is cable but internet is real slow electricity is cheap compared to where I am coming from and so is water. A very quite town with very nice people

I live about 30 miles NE of Springfield and have only been there a few times, but I can tell you some things about it:
  • Springfield proper has fewer than 3,000 people. Washington County, only 13,000, which means...
  • The Washington County public school system is small. There's only middle and high school, and I think two elementary schools.
  • There's a local grocery store and a Save-A-Lot. Two small supermarkets.
  • There's also a Dollar General.
  • Lincoln Homestead State Park is about four miles north of town. Abe Lincoln's uncle or somebody lived on the land and Abe spent summers on the land...something like that. There's also a golf course.
  • St. Catharine College is a tiny, Catholic, four-year college about five miles west of town on US 150.
  • If you want Wal-Mart and Kroger and you live in:
    • North Washington Co., you'll go to Bardstown or Lawrenceburg
    • East Washington Co., you'll go to Harrodsburg or Danville
    • South Washington Co., where Springfield is, Lebanon is very close-by.
    • West Washington Co., you'll go to Bardstown or Lebanon.
Is there ANYTHING else in Washington Co.? Well, Willisburg and St. Catharine are very tiny towns. But that's about it. KY 555, when completed north of the Bluegrass Parkway, will provide a more direct route to Louisville, approximately 1 hr. 20 min. north of Springfield proper. Lexington is only one hour northeast of Springfield. Elizabethtown is about 45 minutes northwest, and Frankfort is about 45 minutes north-northeast.
