Timmons Temple, was once a place where Springfield’s African American community gathered to worship and socialize. Now known as Timmons Hall, it rests in a new location after it was moved to Silver Springs Park in 2015. Today, it’s used as an events venue for the Springfield-Greene County Park Board.
As a part of Silver Springs Park Days, historical Timmons Temple held an open house Sunday for people to gather and remember the old church.
