The Simpsons: Matt Groening Reveals Springfield Location


Matt Groening, creator of The Simpsons, has finally revealed the location and inspiration behind the town of Springfield. There’s been a lot of gags on the show pertaining to the location of the city, but we can now tell you that it was all inspired by the town of Springfield, Oregon, which is located about 100 miles south of Portland. Groening told The Smithsonian in an interview, “I don’t want to ruin it for people, you know? Whenever people say it’s Springfield, Ohio, or Springfield, Massachusetts, or Springfield, wherever, I always go, ‘Yup, that’s right.’” Read the interview here.
