SPRINGERVILLE

Henry Springer, the Bavarian merchant for whom Springerville is named, is credited with this impressive quote: “I talk business, mean business, do business, and if anyone has business to come up and do their business, then go about their business, and give someone else a show to talk business and to do business also.” Springer came to the area from Albuquerque, New Mexico, and established a large grain store where Springerville is today. He eventually went broke and died of a strangulated hernia, but his namesake town, located at the junction of U.S. Route 60 and state routes 180 and 191, is still going strong. A haven for hunters, anglers and skiers, Springerville also caters to tourists visiting nearby Casa Malpais Archaeological Park, home to a pueblo that dates to the 13th century. When you visit Springerville, make sure you stop at Booga Red’s and try the green chile. Like Henry Springer, it’s all business.
