About Springfield

The Springfield Historic District of Jacksonville has some of the best examples of late 19th and early 20th century architecture in the city. Accompanying the beautiful architecture in this neighborhood are trendy new restaurants, craft breweries, and giant oak trees; a trademark of Springfield.

Many people are drawn to the neighborhood for the historic homes, and they quickly find that the sense of community is unlike any other in town. At just under one square mile, Springfield is a walkable and bikeable neighborhood that easily connects to the rest of the urban core. In the early 2000s, Springfield was recognized by Southern Living Magazine as one of the South’s top “comeback neighborhoods”.

Jacksonville's urban core neighborhoods can be locally designated historic districts, districts on the National Register of Historic Places, both, or neither.

Locally Designated Historic Districts: Riverside, Avondale, Springfield, and the St. Johns Quarter are all locally designated historic districts. Any exterior work requires an approved Certificate of Appropriateness (COA) application through the City of Jacksonville. (The neighborhood organizations RAP and SPAR do not process COA applications.) Learn more about the COA process.

National Register of Historic Places: The National Register designation is an honorary one, and does not regulate changes made to properties in historic districts (with the exception of demolitions, which must be reviewed by the Jacksonville Historic Preservation Commission). Riverside, Avondale, Riverside Annex, Springfield, and parts of Ortega are on the National Register.

Neighborhoods that don’t fall into either category: Neither Murray Hill or San Marco are designated locally or nationally. If a specific property was on the National Register (for historical or architectural reasons), then the above rules would apply for demolition.
