4:39 p.m. ET: Simpsons mystery solved! Creator Matt Groening tells Smithsonian magazine that he envisioned the family living in Springfield, Oregon.

“Springfield was named after Springfield, Oregon,” Groening told the magazine. ”The only reason is that when I was a kid, the TV show “Father Knows Best” took place in the town of Springfield, and I was thrilled because I imagined that it was the town next to Portland, my hometown. When I grew up, I realized it was just a fictitious name. I also figured out that Springfield was one of the most common names for a city in the U.S. In anticipation of the success of the show, I thought, “This will be cool; everyone will think it’s their Springfield.” And they do.”
