A Brief History of Our Facility

Like many surviving Springfield, Illinois mansions, the Colonel Henry Davis House at the corner of Fifth and Allen has gone through several lives over the past century.

Built around 1900 for wealthy financier Colonel Henry Davis and his wife, Niana, it was a social center for the town's elite.  Twelve years after Henry died in 1929, his widow leased the mansion to the Illinois State Police, which used it for its Traffic Safety Section headquarters until the mid 1950s.  After a period of vacancy, the Mary Bryant Home for the Blind purchased the building in 1958.  The institution provided a residence for blind people until 1983.  Since then, the Davis Mansion has been home to a variety of business, including its present use as our law office.
