Local Preservationist Going to Court To Save Robinson House

A Springfield historic preservationist will go to court today in an attempt to block the demolition of a local landmark.


Jerry Jacobson with Save Old Springfield says a demolition permit has been issued to the owner of the Robinson House at 1801 West Lawrence.


But Jacobson claims proper procedures were not followed for a home that had received a designation as a local landmark.


The Robinson House was built by descendants of Henson Robinson, founder of one of the oldest existing businesses in Springfield, and was designed by a prominent local architect, Clark Bullard.


The 1930 home is described as a rare local example of French Colonial Design.


Jacobson and the home’s former owner are asking a judge to order the city to suspend or revoke the demolition permit.
