I came across another web page which says the home was torn down in 1918, not 1917 like the other page I read. This page has some interesting information:

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++

"The Edwards home was built in 1836. Episcopalian Bishop Rev. George Seymour bought the home in 1884 and converted it to St. Agatha School, a day and boarding school for girls. St. Agatha’s closed in 1905.

The home was demolished in 1918 to make way for state government’s Centennial Building (later renamed the Howlett Building), and the northwest corner of the Howlett Building now occupies much of what was the Edwards home’s footprint. (Part of the Capitol can be seen in the background of the photo above). By 1918, officials felt the home already had been so extensively remodeled that it had lost most of its historic significance.

“The building has undergone much remodeling since that (the Lincolns’) time, according to persons conversant with its history,” the Springfield News-Record reported, “and there has been some dispute as to whether the room remains in which the wedding took place. That fact and the impracticality of moving the massive old building caused the abandonment of plans to preserve it as a relic.”

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The article says that Ninian Edwards lived until 1899. Does anyone know if he remained in that home until his death? Also, I don't see any electric poles in the photo.

P.S. Rob, thanks so much for taking the time to search your files.
