About Us

The genesis of Preservation SOS began with the knocking down of one too many historic homes and formed after a summer community meeting where residents, homeowners, business owners, city officials, members of existing community groups, and friends came together to brainstorm what could be done to save our homes. We are a grassroots group that continues to be strong and is deeply committed to preserving our historic structures, helping homeowners, and beautifying the neglected fabric of our neighborhood. We are a group with an attitude of “just do it”; a group that has screamed loudly to everyone, “no more”!

We are here, ready , willing and able to do what we can to prevent further demolitions and make Springfield the best community in Jacksonville.

Preservation SOS (Save Our Springfield) is a Florida non-profit corporation and is exempt from Federal income tax under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
