Brenda and Gary Spurling, owners of Spurling Title Service have embarked on a facelift of their location on the South Side of the Taylorville, IL Town Square. The Square and a block or so in each direction have long been designated on the National Registry of Historic Places and restoration of many of the building facades are taking place.
Please note the date on the peak of the facade as being 1892. This building and the Market Street Inn were both built in the same year, only 400 years after Columbus discovered America.
The pressed metal facade has been scraped of loose paint and is being painted in a complementing color scheme. Prior to this the building front was all white which is still visible in the lower right corner.
If you note the building to the left, a brick structure, you will see a facelift which was accomplished several years ago by Brett Mason.
Architectural enthusiasts will find cast iron facades by Mesker Brothers and Capitol Iron Foundry in our historic district as well. We love it when folks walk and gawk at the remaining beauty of our square.

Many years ago it was a tradition to Parade in one’s Easter finery along the Avenue and meet and greet and see and be seen by one and all. Several inspired young ladies of fashion in Taylorville are recreating this tradition on Saturday, April 23 at 1:30 PM around the National Historic Registry Taylorville Square.
Note!!! This is not only for ladies of fashion but gentlemen as well. Ladies, wear your Easter Bonnet and your finery and gentleman, wear your chapeau and fine suitings as well. Don’t have a chapeau or a bonnet? Go online and Google Easter Bonnet and Easter Parade and create your own. What we want is participation.
The Taylorville Square is on the National Registry of Historic Places and has buildings dating back to the late 1800″s. What a great place to meet and greet friends, both old and new.
Here are a couple of young ladies who have been hunting Easter Eggs in their beautiful attire. Did I mention Easter Egg Hunt? Yes, there will be an Easter Egg Hunt on the green of the Courthouse Square sponsored by the Taylorville Kiwanis Club. Eggs will contain various stuffings for the pleasure of the lucky who find them. You might even expect a visit from the Easter Bunny.
Beginning at 1:30 PM is the Easter Promenade and remember, “This is not all about the girls!” Men, come out and show your manhood by dressing up and parading with a finely dressed lady. Or, perhaps, “Man’s Best Friend.”
Of course, well behaved dogs are welcome, especially when attired in the finest of fashion.
After the Promenade, beginning at 2:30PM, there will be a wine tasting in the Shumway Room at One East Market Restaurant and Jazz Lounge. Please come and enjoy. Make a dinner reservation, go home and change and come back in your dancing shoes to enjoy the sounds of The Big Shake Daddies. You will be glad you did.
Easter is the Celebration of the Rebirth of Christ and what a great to do this. Of course, folks from Miles Around and other well known cities are invited to join in and make this celebration the success it should be. Happy Easter from the Market Street Inn Bed and Breakfast.
