Background

The Springfield Historic Commission was established in 1977 to educate the community about the importance of historic resources, promote the use of these resources within the community, and stabilize property values. The Commission oversees the use and preservation of all buildings and sites in the Washburne Historic District and the City Landmark Inventory. Major and minor alterations, building relocation, and demolition of structures are reviewed by the Commission. The Commission consists of seven members who meet on the fourth Tuesday of every other month, or as needed.
