Historic Preservation Series: June 2024

Join us for the next installment in our FREE 2024 Historic Preservation Series on Wednesday, June 12 at 6:00 PM at the SPAR Building (1321 N Main Street).

Local historian Jeff Gardner will share his knowledge of Springfield history, from the initial purchase of the land at the end of the Spanish period through the early/mid 20th century, plus the development of SPAR as a neighborhood organization (celebrating its 50th Anniversary this year!). If you want to be able to understand and share the history of our neighborhood, this is a great event for you - new and old neighbors alike!

ABOUT JEFF: Jeff Gardner spent most of his working life as a consulting archaeologist and historian for a private cultural resources management company. Since his retirement in 2015, he has been happily pursuing his favorite pastime, historical research. When not conducting genealogical studies, he assists his Springfield neighbors in discovering the histories and identifying the previous residents of their historic homes. Jeff is a board member of the Historic Springfield Society (formerly Springfield Improvement Association and Archives). He is the chair of their Archives Committee and is responsible for collecting, maintaining, preserving, and disseminating historical records associated with the Springfield neighborhood.

Attendance is FREE. Registration is not required, but is requested.
