Historic Springfield

Springfield in Jacksonville, Florida is a historic neighborhood located to the north of downtown. Established in 1869, it experienced its greatest growth from the early 1880s through the 1920s. The Springfield Historic District is listed in the
National Register of Historic Places, and contains some of the city's best examples of 19th and early 20th century architecture.

Most of downtown Jacksonville was burned down in the
Great Fire of 1901.  After the fire, many of the city's most prominent and wealthy citizens were now homeless, and turned to Springfield. Springfield became an affluent suburb, due to the large number of wealthy residents who rebuilt their homes there. The majority of the houses are wood frame vernacular structures, but there are some examples of late 19th century revival and romantic styles, including Queen Anne, Colonial Revival, and the Stick style. 20th century types include Prairie School, Bungalow, and Mediterranean. One-story porches and verandas are common, and there are some porches with upper galleries.

Springfield is home to the oldest women's club in Jacksonville, an active mommies' group, a wine society, and the popular “First Friday” pot luck/block parties each month. Most recently a community garden has been added.

The January, 2010 issue of Southern Living magazine spotlights Springfield as one of the South's top "comeback" neighborhoods, noting significant improvement over the past decade.

We have flavor,” says resident Tony Allegretti, who writes a blog called The Urban Core. “We enjoy an urban quality of life with local arts, culture, and neighbors we know by name.”  People come looking to plug in to the energy of the community. “New homes that blend seamlessly with historic ones are bringing in buyers who lack renovation skills,” says Mack Bissette, CEO of SRG Homes & Neighborhoods. “We’ve had passionate renovators here in the past, but this latest wave is lining up with a new generation of buyers.” 

One neighbor had this to say.  “I was in the Navy for 13 years and moved around a lot. Now that I’m out, I wanted to plant roots somewhere to raise my family. We wanted something different – not a cookie cutter home. And we didn’t want to live in a typical suburban neighborhood where you rarely see your neighbors. Speaking of which, we looked in a subdivision in another part of town. Every 3rd house looked the same.  Thankfully my mom is a realtor and knows my taste. When I told her that we were ready to find permanent home in a unique, active neighborhood, she knew just where to look.”


Another resident sums it all up when asked this question:  What do you enjoy most about Springfield?  “I love my house. I love my yard. I love the location of my neighborhood. Most of all, I love my neighbors. We actually know each other. We like each other. My friends who live elsewhere don’t get it – they don't know who their neighbors are. You can go into any number of restaurants in Springfield and it’ll be like an episode of Cheers, where everyone knows your name.”
