Advocacy

Through the annual Preservation Awards, Tours of Historic Homes, Most Endangered List, and taking action when historic properties are threatened by the wrecking ball, SPT has been a consistent voice advocating for historic preservation for over four decades. Our mission is to help residents, business owners, and visitors of Springfield understand the importance of historic preservation and how it supports civic pride by creating unique character and a sense of place. Losing historic places means losing the distinctive features that make Springfield special.
