July 28 - The Hill
The Hill (Walking Tour)
Saturday, July 28 at 10 am/ Guided by Robin Inboden/ Sponsored by Cindy and Frank Catanzaro/ Mobility 2
From the early 1850s to the end of the Civil War, the Hill was one of Springfield’s most affluent neighborhoods. This changed, however, with the arrival of Champion Machine Company in 1868. Join us as we explore the Hill’s early mansions, later working class housing, and the factories that precipitated the transformation. This tour will also pass the birthplace of silent-film actress Lillian Gish. Meet at the corner of Linden Avenue and Monroe Street.
