Restoring the Springfield Log Cabin School building

Landmark Preservation is conducting a condition assessment to help us prioritize the building needs and the problems it is currently experiencing.

We have added a community garden to the four acres to offer healthy produce to the neighborhood, and hope to add a walking trail to make it safer for residents to get exercise.
