ABOUT OUR HISTORIC INN: established 1994, Market Street Inn Bed & Breakfast, 220 East Market Street, Taylorville IL 62568. This premiere Victorian property is a George Franklin Barber design number 143, built in 1892, with 7,100 square feet on 3 levels with 8 guest rooms: 5 on second floor and 3 on third floor, all with private bathrooms and most with fireplaces. First floor has 2 parlors, large dining room and foyer—all with original woodwork, pocket doors, 3 fireplaces and 10.5 feet ceilings. In 1993 this property was acquired by Joe & Myrna Hauser when they returned to their hometown to create a bed & breakfast.

Come “Sit a spell” on the restored wrap-around front porch to savor the experience of small town living—walk 2 blocks to the historic town square to shop and dine.
CARRIAGE HOUSE: 220 South Pawnee Street was acquired in 2003 to add 2 more suites to the B&B. Again extensive restoration and renovation made possible 2 more high-end suites for guests to experience and enjoy a stay in what was once for the horses and carriage.
