Gottschalk Grocery, a National Register of Historic Places site at 301 W. Edwards St. in Springfield, began operating in a frame building starting in 1887. The current structure was built in two stages from 1898 to 1910.
The store, which operated until 1971, was considered a “fine quality food store,” according to Fever River Research’s West Side Capitol Avenue report (1998, revised 2005) and counted among its customers the Bunns, Pattons, Vredenburghs and several Illinois governors.
