Retired State Rep, Civil Rights Activist Honoed With Street Renaming


Former Springfield state representative and civil rights activist Benjamin Swan is receiving another honor from the city.

A section of Wilbraham Road in the Mason Square neighborhood was renamed Ben Swan Way on Saturday.

The sign is close to Swan's former district office.

The 89-year-old attended the official ceremony.

The Springfield School Committee voted to rename Homer Street Elementary School for Swan late last year.
