Between Springfield and Lake Maurepas, Ponchatoula Creek joins the Natalbany and increases its flow.Via the Natalbany, Lake Maurepas, Lake Pontchartrain, and Bayou Saint John, Springfield had access to New Orleans by water. Similarly, at the time (prior to the damming of the channel by levees) along the Amite River and Mississippi River, Bayou Manchac provided shallow-water access between Springfield and Baton Rouge.

Bricks from an old Spanish fort can still be found roughly 200 yards in front of the current post office.
