Springfield, now the third-largest city in the state, was once an area favored by Native Americans for its natural beauty, mild climate, abundant timber, and excellent hunting and fishing. Founded by John Polk Campbell in 1829, the settlement grew steadily, thanks to its civic-minded residents. In 1926, the city became the birthplace of the Mother Road, Route 66, which firmly established Springfield's right to the name "Queen City of the Ozarks."


Be sure to check out the "Images of America" series with books covering the history of Nixa, Ozark, Marshfield, Route 66, and many other local history topics. We have these and other series, including the "Wicked" series covering the seedier side of cities like Springfield, Joplin, and St. Louis. If there is a local history book you want that we don't have we can order it for you!
