On Disarranging Mine, Marie Carnes lists blogs that depict historic Springfield. Sites for readers interested in preservation include:
Look Back Springfield
Vachel Lindsay: Poet
The last three are by Larry Stevens, a champion of local history. Marie's list updates often, so see our "Links" list in the upper right column.
Fortunately, the March '06 tornado did not affect our historic districts. For recent stories and pictures, see the SHS '58 blog.
