The Springfield Steam Power Company Block is a historic industrial block at 51-59 Taylor Street in downtown Springfield, Massachusetts. The block was built in 1881 for the Springfield Steam Power Company, which was established by the directors of the Wason Car Manufacturing Company to provide factory buildings that had steam power facilities for their tenants. The block is a utilitarian three story brick building with some Panel Brick decoration. Its first floor was modified in the 20th century to accommodate retail activities.[2]

The block was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.[1]
