Anyone who cares about American history should visit the The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum. It is a national treasure that has consistently been the most visited presidential museum since it opened in 2005. Our area has much more to offer Civil War and history buffs - Lincoln's Home, Lincoln's Tomb, New Salem State Park, two historic State Capitol buildings, just to name a few. Frank Loyd Wright's Dana Thomas House and the National Museum of Surveying are other gems that visitors should not miss. As you may surmise, visiting all these great places takes some time. Visitors should plan on spending at least two or three days to experience our town.
Purple Awning House is across the street from 88 acres of open space at Lincoln Park, one of Springfield’s oldest and most popular parks. Sports oriented facilities at the park include: trails for walking, running, or cycling, a soccer field, 2 disc golf courses, 3 tennis courts, 3 shuffleboard courts, 6 ball diamonds, and 21 horseshoe courts. The Nelson Recreation Center contains an outdoor swimming pool , 2 indoor ice rinks and Junior Blues Hockey games.
Make this “party headquarters” for your next family celebration or business meeting. Reasonably priced venues for weddings, showers or business meetings are within walking distance at Lincoln Park Pavilion or Edwards Place. The bridge at Lincoln Park Lagoon is a very popular location for outdoor weddings and wedding pictures. Benedictine University, the Brinkerhoff Home and public transportation are less than a block away from Purple Awning House.
Year Purchased: 1988
About the owner: Although we both have lived in other parts of the world for extended periods, we have deep roots in Springfield. We recently left for Massachusetts to be close to children and grandchildren. We hope others will enjoy being at Purple Awning House as much as we do.
Why the Owner Chose Springfield, IL, USA:
Sally purchased the house as a single mom thinking that it would be a good place to raise her two children. Her strategy worked because they both became wonderful, successful adults. We have our many fond memories of our old house and love the neighborhood.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Purple Awning House combines the advantages of being in a city and open space. Lincoln Park is a wonderful place to enjoy the outdoors, yet you can get grocery stores and restaurants with a short walk.
