Springhill is a Canadian town in central Cumberland County, Nova Scotia.

In early records, the town was called "Springhill Mines." Coal mining lead to the establishment and growth of the town, and until the 1960s, it was the town's only significant economic activity. Springhill was incorporated in 1889, and had an 1896 population of 4,901. The town is famous for both the Springhill Mining Disaster and being the childhood home of international recording star Anne Murray. The Anne Murray Centre, located in town, is a local tourist attraction.
