Springfield, MO

With more than 160,000 people, Springfield is the third largest city in the state of Missouri. Established in 1838, Springfield obtained national attention when it became a stop on the Butterfield Overland Mail in 1858. During the time of the Civil War, Missouri was known to be a state with both Northern and Southern sympathizers, which led to the Battle of Wilson's Creek that took place just twelve miles from Springfield in August 1861. The town grew quickly after the "Frisco," the first train of the Atlantic-Pacific Railway, made its first Springfield stop in 1870. Today, the city maintains more than 200 churches, nine colleges, more than 50 parks, and an expansive cultural scene.

ECONOMY AND INDUSTRIES

Springfield is best known as being home to the national Assembly of God headquarters, which helps account for the large number of churches in the area.

Springfield is also home to a T-Mobile customer service center, a Will Fischer (Budweiser) distribution center, Kraft Foods, FASCO Industries, Sweetheart Cup Co., and General Electric.

Agriculture is the dominant industry in Springfield. One of the nation's largest stockyards and feeder cattle facilities is Springfield Regional Stockyards. It is also a shipping and distribution center for milk, poultry and eggs.

Businesses can take advantage of the Springfield Underground, an underground manufacturing, distribution and storage complex. The Underground is a result of Springfield's underground limestone mine and has 2.2 million square feet of space available and still growing.
