The Springfield area is home to an arts community normally found in much larger cities. We’re home to the Springfield Symphony Orchestra, the Springfield Museum of Art, Clark State Performing Arts Center and our outdoor Summer Arts Festival, which celebrated its 45th anniversary in 2011. The Hollenbeck Bayley Creative Arts & Conference Center opened in 2011, giving Springfield the edge in garnering regional and national conferences.
We are one of only a few communities in America that can boast a home designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and a golf course designed by Donald Ross, who designed some of the country’s best-loved courses. Our natural resources, recreation areas and bike trails are among the finest in the region. Top that off with a 2,120 acre lake and state park just 10 minutes from downtown and you’ll see why Greater Springfield is a great place to call home.
