There are also teacher/discussion questions for each tour. We hope you’ll enjoy learning more about the architecture and history of these neighborhoods!
The following walking tours were not published by the Springfield Preservation Trust and may be somewhat out of date but there is still a lot of useful information on building history and architecture.
