The Village of Springville

is a rural community located 45 minutes southeast of Buffalo in Western New York within the southern tip of Erie County.  The Village of Springville is fully encompassed by the Town of Concord and is surrounded by an environment of beautifully wooded hillsides, dramatic stream valleys and very productive farmland.  This quaint Village is nestled in the foothills of the Alleghany Mountains. New York State (NYS) Route 39 crosses the rural setting from east to west and US Route 219 crosses from north to south. Springville’s location at the crossroads of these important routes makes it a natural center for services. Along with the Village’s close proximity to Cattaraugus Creek and its tributaries, the location created opportunities for many early factory, trade and service businesses. To this day, the Village has maintained a historic downtown business district, surviving the influx of big box stores and franchise businesses in recent decades, located in the westerly edge of the Village. One of the key businesses in the historic downtown is the Joylan Theater, which shows first run movies.

What's Happening Around the Village! 

Attention Village of Springville Residents- Scheduled Power Outage:

On October 2nd, 2016, the Village of Springville Electric Department will again be having a scheduled power outage. The outage will take place between the hours of 4am to 10am. This outage is a necessity in order to continue our transmission line maintenance. The amount of repairs completed during these outages will hopefully reduce our chances of weather related issues with the winter season fast approaching. Thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter! Click here for flyer:
