Central Springfield National Register District Boundary Expansion and Additional Documentation

Springfield, IL

Lakota was engaged by the City of Springfield to complete a boundary expansion and additional documentation of the existing Central Springfield National Register Historic District, first listed in 1977. The District is mainly comprised of commercial buildings located around and near the Old State Capitol Building, constructed between 1837-1840, and the Lincoln-Herndon Law Office Building (1940). The boundary expansion added more 70 buildings to the Historic District representing a variety of architectural styles from Greek and Romanesque Revivals to Art Deco and Mid-Century Modern.
