As part of the Springfield Public Library, the mission of the Springfield History Museum is to foster an awareness of the history of Springfield, provide a link between our past and our present, and promote an appreciation of the diverse communities that call Springfield and rural east Lane County home.

Our Vision

We envision the Springfield Museum as a resource for scholars and historians of all ages and a community space where the preservation of our past will help us build our future.
