Forest Park Heights is Springfield's second historic district, created in 1975 and enlarged in 1980. It is a turn-of-the-century neighborhood composed of architecturally fine houses. Although individual structures may not be significant, the relationship between the various buildings creates a whole, which is greater than the sum of its parts. Years after Forest Park Heights was built, it not only is still well maintained, but is still remarkably intact. [www.forestparkcivic.org, accessed April, 2018].
