from 1898 State Journal Register's Guide to Homes
Located across from Frank Lloyd Wright's Dana Thomas House museum, this grand Victorian has been divided but can be reborn as a single family home and/or commercial/retail space. Built in 1890 by a local shoe merchant, house is sited on land once owned by Newton Bateman (http://mrlincolnandfriends.org/inside.asp?pageID=125&subjectID=5), minister of public education and personal friend of A. Lincoln. Lots of history, lots of opportunity . Live/work in a grand house that has stood sentinel to much of Springfield's history. Walk to Lincoln sites, State Capitol complex, Old State Capitol and charming downtown sites.
