Beautiful architecture and a vibrant social scene bring people to visit the Springfield Historic District, but it’s the sense of community that keeps them coming back. For one weekend a year, visitors have an opportunity to enjoy the unique character and quirks of the neighborhood by exploring some of the beautiful homes and gardens that line its tree-shaded streets. The 45th Historic Springfield Tour of Homes and Gardens, presented by M&M Homes, takes place on April 27 and 28, hosted by the Springfield Preservation and Revitalization Council (SPAR).

A guided bicycle tour edition is available for guests, FREE with purchase of a regular Tour of Homes ticket and is BYOB - bring your own bike. On the bicycle tour, local history expert Leigh Burdett guides guests through the homes on the Tour and highlights local historic locations, people, and architecture along the way.

NAVIGATING THE TOUR

A Tour map and guide will be provided to all guests at the starting location: SPAR Building at 1321 N Main Street. The route is easy to walk, bike or drive, but the most efficient way to hit all the stops could be to hop on the FREE shuttle, with stops at several locations along the route.
