Downtown Springfield Association

Become a Downtowner today.

After Springfield was founded in 1838, our downtown was quickly established as the cultural and economic hub of the Ozarks region. This remained true until the 1970s, when our urban center began a downward slide. Fortunately, we can thank the work of many dedicated downtowners over the past 25 years for the renaissance of Springfield’s original neighborhood.

We still have a long way to go to see the vision realized. That’s why we want to invite you to become a member of the Downtown Springfield Association. We need your help—and your voice. Your DSA membership renews annually, meaning you’ll get the benefits listed below all year long.
