Much of the Atwater neighborhood was developed from the 300-acre estate of George Atwater, founder of the Springfield Street Railway. In 1902, his heirs hired the Boston firm of Frederick Law Olmsted, Jr. to create a plan for a pleasant residential neighborhood. Noted local architects designed many of the houses. Development was encouraged by the neighborhood’s park-like setting, proximity to the Springfield Hospital, and access to the trolley line.
The tour will feature Colonial Revival and Shingle style houses from the early 1900s through the 1930s.
