Spring Texas History

Located near the original rail yards built in the early 1900's by the Great Northern Railroad.  It was once called ?Camp Spring? by the railroad workers building the railroads.  The name "Camp" was dropped and the area became know as Spring, TX.   Spring became a crossroads for two intersecting railroad lines .  As it developed and the Depression hit it was reduced to a small community and stayed that way until the late 1960's.

During the oil boom it began to grow again and became popular for its festivals.  Five festivals are celebrated in Old Town Spring, the Springfest, Celebration of Easter, Texas Crawfish and Music Festival, the Long Horn Rod Run, PetFest, and Down Home Chrismas.

Today many Victorian-style shops add to the nostalgic feeling of having "stepped back in time", and some shops were constructed in the early 1900's in order to accommodate the booming railroad town.  You can walk up and down the festive streets shopping, or sit at a quaint eatery and enjoy a nice meal.
