Thursday Doors – Strawbridge House


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


This next photo shows a couple tents of the 114th Regiment Illinois Volunteer Infantry as viewed from inside the house during Old Settler Days on the grounds of the Strawbridge-Shepherd House.


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!)

  1. While I love the colorful one with the soldiers in the grass, autumn all around, I am really glad you turned one sepia, because it feels like we stepped back in time. Great mood 🙂
