Blue Springs is popular among families and business professionals because it plays host to many award-winning schools and is an attractive residential community for commuters. Notably, a number of lawyers call Blue Springs home. Those lawyers specialize in a wide range of practice areas and daily take new cases. There are also a number of picturesque parks and free recreational activities.  

Blue Springs was founded by settlers traveling westward who utilized the clean spring water from Little Blue River. The river played an important role in the development of Blue River and powered the Burrus Old Mill, a grist mill, which can still be visited at the city's Burrus Old Mill Park on Woods Chapel Road. When the Chicago and Alton Railroads announced they were constructing a station 1 mile east of the mill in 1878, the city's center relocated to attract more commerce.
