Springfield, Missouri was founded in 1833 and since then the city has grown tremendously. In recent years that growth has been very evident within the ever revitalizing downtown core. With a population at 159,000 the city may seem small, but certainly packs a punch. Due to a strong economy and the success of four major colleges all located within downtown's reach, the city has grown quite steadily. Home to the headquarters of Bass Pro Shops, O'Reily Auto parts, Hammonds Hotel, and Prime Inc. The city also has a very vibrant culture and history. Once in competition with Nashville as the country music capital, also the city competed with New York City and Hollywood for the amount of original television programing each city was producing, Ronald Reagan debuted a few of his movies here at the Gilloz Theatre, Cashew Chicken originated here, and the birthplace of route 66 is home to Springfield. In this thread I'll be documenting any developments or construction that happen within the city.
