A special ceremony was held this weekend in Springfield to help re-introduce a piece of history to the community.

Timmons Hall, which was once known as Timmons Temple, had a grand re-opening.

A few years ago, the church was set to be demolished but a group of friends called “Friends of Timmons Temple” helped move the whole church building to Silver Springs Park.

A Springfield-Greene County Park Board member says he believes “people will still see it as it once was.”

The mayor of Springfield says he can’t “wait to see it become part of the community.”

The building was moved in 2015 from its old location and after years of renovation being moved to its new location the doors were opened once again this past Saturday.
