Fisher-Latham Building - 1856 Springfield, IL The Fisher/Latham Building represents a once-common, but now comparatively rare style—the mid 19th Century classically-inspired commercial building. The structure is actually a pair of three-story buildings dating from the 1850s. The smaller section to the south was updated and remodeled about 1900 and includes projecting bay windows on the second and third floors. This remodeling expressed the post 1890s Columbian Exposition’s Classical Revival influence. The simple cornice and metal window hood ornaments are hallmarks of the earlier style, with the window hoods being especially important to the Greek Revival style. The Fisher/Latham Building shows the standard formula for 19th Century commercial buildings with public spaces like retails stores, banking rooms, offices or hotel lobbies on the first floor and more private spaces, including apartments, hotel rooms, or meeting halls on the upper floors. Springfield residents Richard Latham and Samuel Fisher had the buildings constructed in 1856. They were part of a building boom in 1850s Springfield in which earlier, wooden buildings were being replaced with substantial brick structures like these. Businesses from a farm implement dealer, milliner and a funeral home, to saloons, a shooting gallery, theater, and a Chinese laundry occupied the buildings in their first century of existence. The buildings were rehabilitated in the 1990s. The entire Studio apartment, kitchen, bath laundry, etc. are private and for the sole use of the guest. There is one Queen bed and the pull-out sofa is a full size (it has no center bar, as it pulls out and up from under the sofa). There are no children, no unregistered guests allowed, no social gatherings, no parties, no animals, and no smoking. Owner and property manager are available nearby with a phone call or text. Great downtown historical location - in the heart of the Land of Lincoln. Very good restaurants nearby and nightlife is nearby. The street level of this building is occupied with antique shops and an artist co-op and the Old State Capitol is in the next block south. Walking distance to all downtown historic attractions. Train station is two blocks away, airport is 4 miles north and walking to local attractions is very easy. There is a shared outdoor patio that is available for guest's use to smoke, no smoking allowed in the apartment. It is shared with other tenants of the building and is located just down the hallway. No children, parties, unregistered guests and no pets are allowed. *No clean-up duties...we will do the stripping of the bed and collection of towels/laundry. Just rinse food from dishes and either leave in sink or in open dishwasher. We only ask that you take out any odiferous trash. Dumpster is near your parking spot.
