Woman Sells Childhood Home For Medical Center Expansion


A Springfield woman has decided to sell her childhood home rather than dig in for what could have been a long and costly fight to save it.

 

The State Journal-Register reports Judy Ansell has agreed to sell the home on West Miller to Memorial Medical Center, which plans to demolish it as part of a hospital expansion project.

 

Ansell is the sister of the late Springfield finance commissioner Jim Dunham, and says she wanted to save the family home for sentimental reasons.

 

But Memorial intended to ask the Mid-Illinois Medical District to use its eminent domain powers to seize the home if Ansell had refused to sell.
