The Strawbridge-Shepherd House is situated on the southern edge of the University of Illinois -Springfield. Originally built in 1845, the house was listed on the National Park Service  National Register of Historic Places in 2015.

This first picture shows the original 1840’s Greek Revival building. A Queen Anne styled addition was added to the rear of the house around 1865. More about the house HERE

I need to point out that the only soldier without stripes on his sleeves is visible to the right. I am usually very well supervised!! (…and closely watched!)
