Architectural and Historical Walking Tours

The following two tours were created with the support of the Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts and may be used by schools, parents, or others, with or without students. There are also teacher/discussion questions for each tour. If you’d like a printed version of these tours, you can find them at the Springfield Museums Welcome Center on Edwards Street. We hope you’ll enjoy learning more about the architecture and history of these neighborhoods!Ridgewood cover image for link
