Springboro

Springboro, one of the fastest growing communities in Warren County, is located between Dayton and Cincinnati in southwest Ohio. Attractive housing set amid rolling farmland make Springboro the choice of many families coming into the area. The city’s master plan controls expansion and preserves the small-town qualities valued by residents. A six-block section of South Main Street has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Each year, Springboro’s Historic District hosts two exciting festivals and one spooky event. Come experience all three! Festivals are sponsored by the Springboro Historical Society, 110 S. Main Street, Springboro, OH. 45066. Concerts in the Park are sponsored by the City of Springboro.
Experience an old-fashioned Christmas Festival, small-town style. Friday night’s candle light walk, carolling and tree lighting kick off the festivities, and Saturday’s parade draws families from near and far. For three days, visitors can browse shops for unique gifts, take horse-drawn wagon rides around the town, and enjoy food, drink and entertainment and four large craft tents.  Many of the original houses still stand along Main Street’s six block historic district.

North Park is located on Tamarack Trail and has 2 lighted tennis courts, five soccer fields, 2 sand volleyball courts, 1 shelter house, one play area, fitness stations, walking trail and offers a summer concert series at the Springboro Amphitheater.

When October evenings turn crisp, leaves turn colors and clouds drift across the harvest moon, it is time for Springboro’s Haunted Hot Dog Roast. Gather behind the Historical Society Museum, 110 S. Main Street, to roast hot dogs and marshmallows over a bonfire. A storyteller weaves tales of a different time. Later, when it is dark, join interpreters on a special tour of the town.

When Springboro was settled by Quakers in the early 1800s, those early residents built many of the buildings still remaining on S. Main Street. Today those original homes have been converted into quaint shops with a charm all their own. Home furnishings, candles, art glass, seasonal decorations, children’s and women’s clothing, and gifts of all varieties are to be found in Springboro’s Historic District.

La Comedia, the USA’s fourth largest dinner theatre, offers year-round Broadway style entertainment and a fabulous buffet meal.
