To the Springfield voters,

The Springfield Art & Historical Society wants to give a heartfelt “thank you” to the Springfield residents who support the Society and who voted for our special funding request for $9,500. As I said at the town meeting, we have no paid staff and every penny received goes directly to housing, maintaining and displaying Springfield’s history. We continue to receive amazing artifacts from both local citizens and from far away. We just received three large boxes from Illinois containing labeled photographs, books, needlework, etc. associated with the Holmes family, who ran the Cotton Mill on Park Street through most of the 19th century. The donor, who spent $300 sending it to us, said, “I just couldn’t throw it away.” What a loss that would have been!
