The Simpson's Hometown
For almost a quarter century, Simpsons creator Matt Groening has kept the location of the show a secret. The family lives in Springfield but it was never revealed which state it was in. (There are 13 cities, 11 towns and 14 townships in the United States named Springfield.) In an interview with Smithsonian magazine, Groening said that the fictional town was named after Springfield, Oregon.
1050 AM KORE is a Religious station licensed to Springfield-Eugene, Oregon and a sure favorite of Ned Flanders.
