Bernard Stuve House


526 South 7th Street
Springfield, IL

Dr. Bernard Stuve and his wife Mary received the home at 526 South Seventh Street as a gift from his father.  Mary was the daughter of Judge William Wilson.  The home is an Italianate structure built in 1869.  The Italianate style is exemplified by its low pitched roof, square central core, tall narrow windows, and wide overhanging eaves with ornate brackets.
