Springville has a long heritage in country music. Early settlers called our hamlet Fiddlers Green because of the entertainment on our Village Commons. In 1834 the Village was incorporated as Springville, but Fiddlers Green lives on and so does the music and entertainment.
“Fiddler’s Green is my Hometown” was written in honor of Springville’s Bicentennial in 2012 and celebrates some of our famous past residents. Dr. Ralph Waite who introduced novocaine as a dental anesthetic, George Schuster who won the “Great Race” in 1908, Jack Yellen wrote lyrics to over 200 songs including “Happy Days are Here Again” and “Ain’t She Sweet”. Wednesday’s on the hill refers to the famous Springville Auction open to the public each Wednesday. Thank to the composer Barb Bohneber and performer Leanna Pfeffer.
