Conn’s Hospitality Group started with Roy Conn’s first Springfield restaurant in 1948. Six decades and many successful ventures later, Roy’s son, Court and his wife, Karen, and Court’s sons, Casey and Adam and their families now run operations that include Inn at 835, Obed & Isaac’s Microbrewery & Eatery (Springfield & Peoria), Wm. Van’s Coffee, Merchant House and Historic Gillett Farm. Each business is located in a different historic home or building in either downtown Springfield, Peoria or Elkhart, Illinois that has been lovingly and carefully restored by the Conn family. Several of the properties’ ownership history can be traced back through the Conn family’s lineage.
