You can have the privilege of staying in one of Springfield's oldest homes, an historic 135 year old Victorian family home in beautiful Walnut Street Historic District with gardens and large front porch. The home was built by the owner's Great Grandfather for his new bride in 1886. The Camp House has always been owned and lived in by descendants of the original owner/builder, Dr. Walter and Pauline Camp. John and Pat have restored the home to it's mostly original condition.

The space
The house is within easy walking distance of downtown, the Cardinals AAA ballpark, concert halls, MO State Univ., restaurants, city parks. The home is in the Walnut Street Historic District with many historic homes which make a nice walking tour.
