Marker Text

The Springfield Community Hall was constructed between 1938 and 1940 by the Works Progress Administration, a national relief program during the Great Depression. Construction of the hall, using sandstone quarried a few miles west of town, bolstered the local economy by employing area men. Since its completion, the building has provided Springfield with a public facility which has been used for educational, recreational, and political events. In 1998 the structure was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
