Welcome to a web extension of the publication
Springfield’s Sculptures, Monuments and Plaques

discovered since the release of the publication
and information that could not be included in the
book due to space limitations.
Springfield’s Sculptures, Monuments, and Plaques
serves three purposes: a record of history, a guide for
exploring Springfield, Illinois, and a springboard for
future research. It is written so that the armchair
historian and the city explorer can discover the rich
and varied record of Springfield, Illinois, through the
eyes of those who have chosen to preserve history
through artworks and plaques.
