OUR STORY

SPORTS HISTORY IN SPRINGFIELD SINCE 1981.

Ebbets Field Restaurant is located in the past home of the Honorable Harry Durst, mayor of Springfield from 1932 to 1940. Built in 1912 by Judge Durst, who lived there for over 35 years, the building is part of the Walnut Street Historic District that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The following description was included in the nomination:

“Built in the Craftsman-movement inspired style. Two story house with a low pitch gabled roof with wide projecting eaves with large knee braces placed beneath. The first story is brick faced and the second is frame covered with stained butt shingles. There is a low pitch gabled roof porch across one half of the facade. A modern wood porch fills the remainder of the facade. At the stair landing on the east elevation is a pair of original geometric motif stained glass windows.”

In addition, the interior still contains ten stained glass cabinet doors in the old living room of the same motif, along with two stained glass lantern lamps. The original beamed ceilings can be seen downstairs, and original wainscoting is present throughout the house.

Even though there have been varied owners through the years, including a college fraternity, you’ll discover that much of the original character and charm of Judge Durst’s home has been retained.
