Known as the “Queen City of the Ozarks,” Springfield was founded in 1829 and became the seat of Greene County in 1835. Beginning in 1870, Springfield served as a railroad hub that connected the Ozarks culturally and financially to Kansas City, St. Louis, Chicago, and points along the East Coast. In 1938, Route 66 became part of the city’s history when the legendary highway came through the public square on College Street. Built on land donated by Springfield founder John Polk Campbell, the square continues to be a vital part of the city’s culture and economy. Postcard History Series: Springfield illustrates the community’s growth from downtown businesses to the spread of schools, hospitals, and parks across the city.
