History of Spring ISD

  • Legend has it that the town of Spring was born in the mid 1800s. Just where the name Spring came from is up for speculation. Old-timers recall that a mining camp settled just south of Spring Creek about the same time the season changed from winter to spring. The men had endured an especially harsh winter, so they welcomed the new season by naming their location "Spring Camp." Other old-timers maintain the Spring name gets its origins from a creek of the same name that runs through the east side of the District.

    The school district that bears the Spring name was born in 1935 when two small thriving schools merged to form one independent school district. One of those schools was located in what is now Old Town Spring and the other, called "Harrell," was located just west of the current FM 1960/Kuykendahl intersection.
