“In 1996, I embarked on what I thought was going to be a simple journey to build a community where my grandmother could live comfortably. At that time, a better community meant a better building. I quickly learned it meant so much more than that.” - Fee Stubblefield, Founder, and CEO of The Springs Living
Our Journey Through Time
The Springs Living was founded in 1996 and built on a promise to take care of families. Today, The Springs Living continues to create warm, hand-crafted communities that feel like home and we've never lost sight of our true mission. When you deeply respect and care about others, you will go out of your way to serve them and do the right thing.
