The Culver House
The Culver House, located at 412 W. Prairie St. in Decatur, IL, has stood there since 1888. It has an enthralling past. It was the home of a local attorney, then was purchased by John H. Culver, a prominent businessman who lived there until his death. It was later turned into apartments, and after a fire in 1979, it was not once, but twice slated for demolition.
The Historic Decatur Foundation stepped in and saved this piece of our local history and is working to revitalize this historic home which is located in the Historic District. It is the last Queen Ann style home in Decatur with a turret.
We invite you to be part of history and help save this historic home.
