Over the years, the Society has had a number of different locations, but for more than ten years they have been proud and honored to have found a beautiful permanent home in downtown Springfield in the old City Hall and Marketplace, which was built in 1890. Today the Heritage Center of Clark County stands tall on the Springfield skyline as the home of Clark County’s heritage, where priceless mementos open a window on many generations of history.
