Places

Landmarks in the community

The Journey Continues is interested in exploring and documenting places that have held importance for Springfield's African American community. Some of these places still exist, while others are gone. 

During the interviews we've conducted, we've learned about businesses, neighborhoods and restaurants, and we're interested in learning more. If you have stories to share about Lincoln High School, Jones Alley, businesses like Graham's Barbecue, churches or other locations that are important to the history of the community, please contact Lyle Foster to explore interview possibilities.
