    Springfield Tour of Homes: the McMurry House
    OK, let's start with a quick quiz. Do you remember in last week's article the family who owned the land that included 309, 311, and 313 North Main Street? That's right, the Eckles family. Lizzie Eckles married prominent tobacco businessman William McMurry, and in June of 1891, they were deeded property on North Main Street from the heirs of Isham A.

Previewing Springfield's Tour of Homes: the Eckles House

Such is the case for the house at 311 North Main Street.

The property, taking in 309, 311, and 313 North Main Street, all goes back to Isham Eckles, who ran a drugstore on the east side of the Square in Springfield. He bought two and one quarter acres on Russellville Road from T.M. Henry in 1855.

A lot on the northern portion of the property fronting 91 feet and 6 inches was sold at public auction to J.W. Dean for $261. This is the lot at 309 North Main where the Onstotts now live.
