Springfield Historic District:
Established in 1869.
Hogans Creek lies along its south edge, and railroad tiles are found on the north and east. Boulevard defines the western limit of the district, where a later commercial strip abuts the earlier residential area. Contemporary with the overall residential area are two commercial strips along Main and Eighth Streets which join at the heart of the district. The district contains 119 city blocks in an area of approximately 500 acres, or slightly less than one square mile. Hogans Creek separates the residences of Springfield from the downtown area.
