Good news! Happy Independence Day from The Burnham House
Jul 2, 2018 — Looking forward to many more Independence Days with the Burnham House! Architectural preservationist and U of I Architecture alum Chris Enck has found a terrific new location for the Burnham House: 501 W Church St., Champaign IL. It will move one block east and face beautiful and historic West Side Park. This is great news for historic preservation.
In other wonderful news, Enck also hopes to save the historic Captain Bailey House and its Carriage House (https://saveburnham.weebly.com/the-captain-bailey-house-and-several-more.html) from demolition. Moving these onto the same oversize lot as the Burnham will create a historical row along the park with the existing beautiful Heath and Vaughn and Owen Buildings. http://www.news-gazette.com/news/local/2018-06-28/burnham-mansion-could-get-couple-neighbors-new-site.html
Amazing work Chris and all of you who have contributed in any way to this effort!
Across the country, we are losing so many historic structures to rapid development. Thank you for caring about history and our nation's architectural legacy. Moving the Burnham House to save it from demolition is an expensive process and must be done by July 15th to avoid hefty fines. Please continue to support preserving the Burnham by considering a donation of any size to the Burnham GoFundMe page https://www.gofundme.com/moving-the-burnham-mansion.
If you are interested in another way to assist The Burnham House: please consider becoming an EQUITY PARTNER.
