Springport is located in the northwestern corner of Jackson County, at the junction of M-99 and Landon Road. Its economic base is supported generally by small businesses and stores, along with a few small manufacturing and service facilities. It has its own school system and village form of government. The Springport Township Hall is also located there. One local point of interest is the well-preserved railroad depot on the northeast side of town, which was built in 1876 when the Lake Shore & Michigan Southern Railroad came to the area.
Springport was named because of the natural springs found in the area. It was first settled by John Oyer back in 1836, and first named Oyer’s Corners. It was officially organized as a village in 1883.
