Controversial Maisenbacher House Reborn As Coffee House


Years after igniting controversy by moving a Lincoln-era home to a new location… with the help of city tax dollars… a Springfield couple has completed the transition of that home into a new downtown business. 

 

Court and Karen Conn will cut the ribbon Friday on William Van’s Coffee directly across from the Lincoln Home Visitors Center.  The coffee house… which will also feature sandwiches, pastries and ice cream… will occupy the 160-year-old Maisenbacher  House, which was reportedly built with the help of a loan from Abe Lincoln himself. 

 

It’s the latest business to go up in refurbished historic buildings along Jackson Street, giving a boost to the area near the Lincoln Home site and the Hoogland Center for the Arts.
