  • Many people feared that dogs were carrying rabies. In 1915 the City council discussed an ordinance that would keep dogs on leashes. The people of Springfield petition this law. People thought that dogs should be allowed to drive cattle through the city.
  • In 1915, an electric mill was constructed in Springfield and thrived through the late 1950's.
