“Where voices of history come alive”

Beginning with the region's prehistoric origins, museum displays take the visitor through the earliest settlement of the region, on to the upheaval of the Civil War, and into the period of growth that followed. The permanent exhibit concludes in the late 1950s, when Springfield was named an All-American City. Visiting groups can tour the permanent exhibits and special exhibits. Where else could you see mastodon bones, and a Civil War uniform?  The research collection contains more than 30,000 books and documents, including books by area authors, historical reference books, local family papers, deeds and maps. Our photograph holdings are particularly strong, with more than 20,000 historical photographs preserving images of Springfield from its beginnings.
