Located in the heart of historic downtown Springfield, Prairie Archives has been serving Central Illinois since 1973. We have occupied three locations since our founding and our current store has been located at 522 E. Adams since 1992. We have approximately 250,000 books in stock, documents, manuscript material, posters, prints, comics, collectibles, magazines, political buttons, postcards and lots more!
If you don't see a title you're looking for, please feel free to inquire; only
a small part of our stock is catalogued.
Our store hours are 10-5 Central time Monday through Saturday.
We also carry a line of t-shirts, including the ever-popular "Abraham Lincoln:
They'd have to shoot me to get me back to Springfield" and "Frank Lloyd Wright:
I can design a building that would look good even in Springfield". Please
inquire about our other designs, sizes and prices.
And of course, we can't leave without mentioning Hannah, our golden retriever.
She has run things here since she was a puppy [October, 1994]; she brings more business to the
shop than anyone else. Always friendly, cheerful, and affectionate (especially
when someone has food!) She has recently been joined by Ruby, a young and energetic black lab.
Hannah and Ruby say "Come See Us!"
