On Saturday, Nov 17, the Iles House played host to two groups, the docents who provide guide and host services throughout the year, and the local chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
Here the docents discuss their duties and schedules over lunch. David Stevens (ivory sweater) provides advice and feedback.
Dick describes the Iles House as "Springfield's home," as it has rapidly become a gathering and meeting place for many historic-minded associations.
The DAR, descendants of ancestors who achieved American independence, has existed since the late 1800s. 2006 marks the 60th anniversary of the Caleb Hopkins chapter of central Illinois.
That eerie face in the silver tray is David Stevens. Pictures are by Dulany Sriner.
