But because Springfield is such a common name for a town, even Groening admits that the Simpsons could live just about anywhere. “Springfield, Missouri, is the most populous of America’s Springfields and easily won the title of ‘Most Similar Simpsons City Named Springfield,'” says Ryan Nickum, Estately’s blogger.
