THE O.S. KELLY MANSION A little Springfield trivia I was told: Fountain Ave was named for O.S. Kelly as he donated fountains downtown. Historic Home built in 1861. Across the street is Kuss Auditorium, A Concert and Performing Arts venue. Perfect place for a Bed and Breakfast! Sold "AS IS" Home is a blank slate. No HVAC. 2 original fireplace mantels in storage. At almost 5000 square feet, This home has so much history and could be a showplace. Sellers do not have time to bring this gem back to its former glory. Seller replaced glass in windows. Financing would most likely have to be cash as it is a shell. Located in Historic District of Springfield so it's subject to their rules and regulations. Close to all the new building in downtown! This home is crying to be lovingly restored and would be an incredible project for a talented person.

Directions to this Listing: One block from Library and Kuss Auditorium. 2 blocks from center of downtown.

Lifestyle in Springfield, OH
Springfield

Prehistoric Indian mound builders were probably the first residents of this area. The city name originated from the rich resources of the land, the picturesque cliffs and the many springs and abundant waters in the area.

Summary

Approximately 45 miles west of Columbus and 25 miles northeast of Dayton on the banks of the Mad River near Clark Lake and the Clarence J. Brown Reservoir in Clark County, Springfield is the county seat. The city is perhaps best known as one of the world’s leading manufacturers of agricultural equipment as the home of International Harvester Company (now known as Navistar International). The 4-H Club movement had its beginnings in Springfield. As one of Dayton’s earliest outlying settlements, many different periods of growth have contributed to the varied cultures and economic levels.

Houses from the last century survive with newer homes. Many of the older Victorian dwellings are being artfully and carefully restored by young artisans. You must see the older homes found in the South Fountain Historic District. The historic Westcott House was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and features Wright’s prairie-style, low-pitched roof home style – the only one of its kind in Ohio. You can also find many newer homes of brick and frame, more modest in size and price.

Springfield is home to Wittenberg University, a private, four-year liberal arts college offering more than 70 majors and special programs.
