I know of no hardship

Fostering concern for the physical environment leading to intelligent planning and preventing irreversible damage is not a travesty.

The Springfield Historical Society has been working on the proposal for historic district nomination on the Springfield Patent since about 1994. This patent granted to nine individuals in 1742 comprises most of the eastern portion of the Springfield township. At the public meeting hosted by Ken Ostrander last August, Kathleen LaFrank the State Historic Preservation Office representative stated that most areas consider it is an honor to be recognized as an historic district. It is to this end that we have continued to proceed with the nomination process.
