SPRINGFIELD, Mo A Greene County home just landed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Heer's family of local department store fame built the home in 1921. The application's author calls the home a highly intact example of Ozark Rock Masonry Construction.
Frances Heer and his wife lived at Heercleff until 1929. The 3-story home overlooks the James River. A newspaper article about the sale reported that the sale of Heercleff became part of a larger real estate transaction in 1929. That transaction included the purchase of the Woodruff Office Building in Springfield.
Properties on the national register may qualify for tax incentives to help preserve part of our nation's history.
