If you're in Springfield, highly recommend stopping by the Dana-Thomas House. Enjoy the architectural, furnishings and history with a tour (maybe allow 2 hours so you can check out the gift shop too).

Love this place. Surprises everywhere you look around. House is a feat of architecture and they have done an amazing job preserving everything. Frank Lloyd Wright was a genius. Can't recommend enough.

The site is open year round Weds.-Sun. and seasonally Mon. & Tues. The website doesn't say when the seasonal ends. The best thing to do is call 1 217 782-6776. Sorry I couldn't be more help.
