The Historic McKnight Neighborhood
Developed between 1870 and 1900, McKnight is the largest and most intact, wood-frame, late-nineteenth century neighborhood in New England. Among its more than 800 houses are some of the most elegant homes in Springfield. McKnight is many things but most of all a community. Check out why we think McKnight is special.
