Springwater is an unincorporated rural community[1] in Clackamas County, Oregon, United States, about three miles south of Estacada on Oregon Route 211. So-named since pioneer days, it was one of the first places on the upper Clackamas River to have a post office.[2] Springwater post office ran from 1874–1914, with George A. Crawford as the first postmaster.[2] The historic wooden Springwater Presbyterian Church was built circa 1890.[3] The Springwater Grange has celebrated a Springwater Fair every year since 1923.[4]
