The Enos Park neighborhood is located just north of downtown Springfield and encompasses 36 square blocks of residential and business properties. Once known as the “Jewel of Springfield,” Enos Park represented a diverse community of rich and influential leaders, as well as many working class families. Even today, Enos Park is one of the most ethnically and socio-economically diverse neighborhoods in the city. Its tree-lined streets are filled with unique exles of Victorian, Italianate, and Queen Anne style homes that date back into the early nineteenth century. We hope you’ll visit and take a step back in time, to days gone by, and wonder in amazement what stories these old homes would tell if they could only speak.
