Springfield Township’s homes offer a range of lot sizes, from less than a half-acre to more than 25 acres of rolling hills or forested terrain. Homes are in a prime location, set near Union City and its selection of restaurants, stores, and other creature comforts. The rural setting keeps you separated from the city life for a more relaxed and peaceful lifestyle, but luxury amenities and more options for recreation aren’t far with Downtown Erie set just a half hour away.


Springfield Township may be located in a more rural setting, but Union City is a decent provider of casual employment. Cashiers and customer service representatives are needed to keep the local businesses running smoothly. More industrial jobs can be found about a half-hour away in Erie, where tourism and manufacturing jobs offer more opportunities for advancement. The city is also big for healthcare positions, including nurses and home health social workers, and employment in local utility companies.


Children living in Springfield Township will attend either the Wattsburg School District or Fort LeBoeuf School District. Which they attend primarily depends on their zip code and if they’re closer to Union City or Wattsburg. Both districts are not short on public schools to ensure teachers aren’t overburdened by large classrooms. Alternatives to public schools are available, including Mercyhurst Preparatory School, Erie First Christian Academy, and Cathedral Preparatory School.
