[edit] Springfield

  • Springfield City records indicate that the year 1913 marks the beginning of a regular paving program for city streets. Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Seventh and A Streets were paved that year with crushed rock from the town quarry.
  • In 1913, the state legislature created and funded the State Highway Commission to develop and build a statewide network of highways (Corning 1956:113). The enormous task took years to complete, and it was not until 1921 that the present-day McKenzie Highway became part of the state system. Modernization of the road followed in 1922-1923 (Corning 1956:161).
  • The Citizens Ticket (Dry Party) beats the People's Progressive Ticket (Wet Party) and the city becomes dry. See Springfield article
