This historic hub in downtown Springfield is a thriving shopping and dining district. Springfield's Main Street is not only a prime antiquing destination, it is a popular nucleus for art from murals to workshops, and offers a rewarding visit for the history buff. Along with the Springfield History Museum and the Emerald Art Center, Springfield's Main Street is now anchored by an excellent and popular craft brewery — Plank Town Brewing Company.
Loosely bounded by Second and Eighth Streets and close to bike paths, the Main Street strip offers unique shops, eateries, a distillery, a grocer and a performing arts venue. Just a few blocks north is PublicHouse, a beer hall featuring a collection of dining options. The Willamette River wraps around Main Street to the west and then runs parallel to the south.
Main Street is where you'll find unique gifts and uncommon stores from antiques and shabby chic to consignment jewelry and clothing fashions. There is a drop-in sewing room and fabric store, a comic book collectibles store and even a "painting party" studio where wine is paired with art instruction.
At the Springfield History Museum learn about Springfield's pioneer, lumber, farming and brewing roots. It may surprise you that Springfield is also the former home of Ken Kesey, author of "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest;" the site where Nike shoes were first developed, and "the real" Springfield portrayed in The Simpson's TV show.
Public art is plentiful in Springfield. Along with the pop culture murals featuring The Simpsons and Kesey, there are many colorful and interesting historic vignettes along Main Street. Download the self-guided walking tour of the area's murals.
