Welcome to

Commercial Street, eclectic, artisan and historic. This was the hub of opportunity and commerce in 1870 “Newtown,” as North Springfield was then called. The new Frisco rail line brought people and goods and diverse cultures to start Springfield on its successful trajectory. Commercial Street or “C-Street,” as it’s affectionately called sat on the edge of the American West back then, but even now it’s still full of undeniable energy.

It's all on the map. See where everyone is checking in.
