Ozarks Voices: The Story of Springfield

Ozarks Public Television produced a program entitled: "Ozarks Voices: The Story of Springfield," which documents stories and remembrances of three dozen participants, ages 65 to 107, in a Senior Writers Retreat program sponsored by the Missouri Writers Hall of Fame. The video depicts nearly 90 minutes of interviews of people who grew up in and around Springfield as they recall watching it grow from a small town into a city. Their diverse backgrounds and experience provide unique insights into the region's history and possible future, and will help others understand how the city and the Ozarks became what they are.
