The Neighborhood
Developed in  the 1900's, the Phelps Grove neighborhood, cited by Southern Living Magazine as  of one the the South's best comeback neighborhoods, is home to one of  Springfield's largest collections of bungalow architecture.  The streets are lined with large trees and many properties proudly display plantings nourished over many decades  The neighborhood's proximity to Missouri State University (MSU) makes it an ideal home for University faculty, staff and students.  Others choose the neighborhood for its central location, moderately priced housing, and the ambience found in a well-cared for older neighborhood. In addition to the cultural and entertainment opportunities at Missouri State University, the Phelps Grove Neighborhood is home to Phelps Grove Park and the Springfield Art Museum, making cultural and recreational activities within easy walking distance for residents.
