Info

The public is invited to historic Edwards Place on Tuesday, Jan. 29 at 5:30 p.m. for a behind-the-scenes look at the restoration currently underway in the dining room.  Curator of Collections Erika Holst will discuss the restoration plans, describe what has been done thus far, and share historical discoveries that have been made with the removal of old wallpaper, carpeting, and doors.  There is no charge to attend, but space is limited so guests are asked to call in advance to reserve their place.

Built in 1833, Edwards Place was purchased by Benjamin Edwards in 1843 and was significantly enlarged in the 1850s.  Edwards Place remained in the Edwards family sixty-six years before it was acquired by the newly-incorporated Springfield Art Association in 1913.  In celebration of its centennial anniversary, the Springfield Art Association is planning to restore the interior of Edwards Place to the grandeur of its mid-19th-century appearance.  Restoration has begun in the dining room and will proceed throughout the rest of the house as funds are raised.  

Edwards Place is located at 700 N. Fourth Street, two blocks north of Carpenter Street.   For more information, please call 217-523-2631 or email collections@springfieldart.org.
