Notes
Survey number HABS MO-1252-DD
Significance: Built by early Springfield businessman Arch McGregor, this large frame house is typical of the picturesque residences built along East Walnut Street around the turn of the century. It features the asymmetrical form and diverse detailing of the Late Victorian style with the massiveness and front porch design of the later Neoclassical bungalow, combining the two styles into a building common for the neighborhood. The house is strikingly familiar to 835 East Walnut, next door - built at the same time by Arch's brother Charles McGregor. Both worked for their father John McGreogor's hardware business, formed in 1866 as McGregor, Noe and Keet. In 1914 Arch became president of the company, and four years later Charles sold his interest in the business to purchase an auto dealership. Arch McGregor continued at the hardware store until his death at 84 in 1940. As one of the city's leading businessmen, he was also socially and politically prominent in Springfield - a formative figure to the city.
