June 16 - Westcott and The Progressive Era
Saturday, June 16 at 10 am
Guided by Kevin Rose / Sponsored by Richele Shepard and Jeff Smith / Mobility 3
The Westcotts moved to Springfield in 1903 during a period of social and aesthetic reform known as the Progressive Era. Join us on this bicycle tour as we explore the world of Burton and Orpha Westcott from 1903 to the mid-1920s, including associated houses and factories, architecture influenced by the Prairie School, and the City Beautiful park concepts envisioned for Greenmount Cemetery. Meet outside the Westcott House, 85 South Greenmount Avenue, on your bicycle.
