Springville

Located in the Sierra foothills above Porterville along Highway 190, Springville serves as the gateway to the Giant Sequoia National Monument and nearby Balch Park with its historic sequoia groves. The community was originally called "Daunt" because local pioneer William Daunt opened the town's first store there in 1860. The great tasting water from soda springs found in the area prompted a name change to "Springville" in January, 1911. Today Springville benefits as a tourist attraction. Each April for more than a half century, the town has hosted the annual Springville Sierra Rodeo, a P.R.C.A. event. The Springville Apple Festival is held here each October. Another annual event not to be missed is the Jackass Mail Run.
