The Eureka Schoolhouse, constructed between 1785 and 1790, is Vermont's oldest one-room school and one of the few surviving 18th century public buildings in the state. It was originally located in the "Eureka Four Corners," northeast of Springfield village, and was in continuous use until 1900. The schoolhouse was brought to this site and restored by a committee of Springfield citizens and the Vermont Board of Historic Sites in 1968. The pine board exterior, simulating stone block, was once painted golden yellow and the hipped roof was cobalt blue.

The 37 foot long Baltimore Covered Bridge, a "Town Lattice Truss" type ridge was built in 1870 by Granville Leland and Dennis Allen to cross the Great Brook in North Springfield. It was moved to this location in 1970.
