Moving Day

Dulany Sriner recently sent several pictures of August 30, 1998, the day the Iles House moved from 1825 South Fifth Street to Seventh and Cook Streets. The original historic location was Sixth and Cook. More photos of the Iles House and other Springfield attractions are available on Dulany's web site, D's Digitals.

What a well-documented and memorable day that was. In the foreground of the first picture you can see my brother Gary Stevens (yellow shirt) and my father David Stevens - descendents of Latham T. Souther - taking pictures.
