Masonic History

The historic structure was originally built in 1906 as a Masonic Temple. The four-story building offered up 40,000 square feet of floor space with a spacious auditorium on the fourth floor. The center played host to local Masons for more than 75 years.

80s Renovation

The Vandivort went through a prolific renovation in the 1980s, with most of the space divided into offices. Unfortunately, the drop ceilings and drywall hid much of the building's original charm. During this time, it was placed on the Springfield Historic Sites Register and the National Register of Historic Places. In recent years, the fourth floor served as home to the Springfield Contemporary Theater and the ballroom.

Hotel Vandivort Today

Downtown Springfield boasts a robust arts, dining, nightlife, and business scene and it was apparent professionals and vacationers wanted an original Springfield experience. The need for an upscale boutique hotel in the heart of downtown inspired the McQueary brothers to purchase the Vandivort building with its rich history and prime location. They began reclaiming the building’s history and original beauty while creating a thriving and social hospitality venue. Hotel Vandivort was born.
