The Ambassador was built in 1928 and has continually served the elite Springfield community as an apartment building since that time. It has been remodeled and renovated, however we have kept the timeless beauty and charm of the building.

Located on Elm Street just off of National this four-story building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Brand new appliances, lighting, and freshly painted walls, compliment the refurbished original hard-wood floors, trim, cabinets, and refinished bathrooms. A perfect blend of new and old make it a one-of-a-kind place to live.

The Ambassador is within walking distance to MSU and only minutes away from shopping and Springfield’s downtown nightlife.
