The Gray/Campbell Farmstead

The Gray/Campbell Farmstead is the oldest house in Springfield, Missouri.  The Farmstead is located in the Nathanael Greene Park on South Scenic.  Along with the oldest house in Springfield (circa 1856), there is a log kitchen, a two crib barn, and a log granary.  The House was built by James Price Gray and was later sold to his brother-in law, John Polk Campbell, the nephew and name-sake of the founder of the city of Springfield.  The house was occupied by the Campbell family from 1865 to the 1950's, and it was moved to the Nathanael Greene Park in 1984 when the Kansas and James River Expressways were about to be constructed..
