Welcome to the Springfield-Greene County African American Heritage Trail.

The creation of the Springfield-Greene County African American Heritage Trail is made possible through a public-private partnership. The trail will wind its way throughout the Springfield Midtown and Downtown neighborhoods, with signage highlighting 20 different historic points of interest. There are a variety of stories to be told – of faith, friendship, perseverance, music, and community – that will help us move forward together.
