A Taste of Springfield, Ohio

did you know?
DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT SPRINGFIELD?
  1. Springfield is a city in the U.S. state of Ohio and the county seat of Clark County. As of the 2010 census, the city had a total population of 60,608.

  2. In 2004, Springfield was chosen as an "All-America City". In 2011, Springfield was named the "unhappiest city in America" by the The Gallup Organization after a three-year survey.

  3. On March 7, 1904, over a thousand residents formed a lynch mob, stormed the jail and removed prisoner Richard Dixon, a black man accused of murdering police officer Charles B. Collis. Richard Dixon was shot to death and then hung from a pole on the corner of Fountain and Main Street, where the mob continued to shoot his lifeless body. The mob then proceeded to burn much of the black area of town. In February 1906, another mob formed and again burned the black section of town known as "the levee". Sixty years later, Springfield was the first city in Ohio to have a black mayor, Robert Henry.
