Conn's Hospitality Group, Inc. took ownership of three properties in October 2021:  Vinegar Hill Mall, the old Baur's Steakhouse, and the Dewitt Wycliffe Smith Mansion.  Their penchant for historic preservation took hold with a two year long renovation project that culminated in new life coming into the space with the opening of Trish & Mary's Public House in October 2023.
A short six months later, in April 2024, Wm. Van's Coffee, formerly located at 7th and Jackson Street in downtown Springfield, found its new home across the hall.  Wm. Van's Coffee expanded to become Wm. Van's Cafe by adding a large, all day breakfast and lunch menu to its craft coffees and teas.  
Stay tuned as we add new life to the historic property.  Please feel free to contact with any questions, ideas, or if you'd like to book any events.
