Description


Originally settled by James Demint in 1801, Springfield, Ohio, boasts a history marked by rich agrarian roots and striking industrial advances.


The full range is chronicled here in a second Images of America volume, featuring over one hundred archival photographs alongside the captions that illuminate them. Those familiar with author Harry Laybourne's first volume on Springfield, or those encountering its history for the very first time, will undertake a journey that deepens an understanding of this fascinating city. Home to Wittenberg University, the Clark County Historical Society, and the Westcott Home built by Frank Lloyd Wright, Springfield has undergone numerous changes in its remarkable 200 year history. Laybourne invites the reader to witness these changes as they unfold. Join him on a fascinating exploration of Springfield, and discover its thriving downtown district, distinctive cultural arena, adaptation to rail and aviation, and perhaps most notably, the many faces who helped to build the city's identity and profile.
