It was in 1821 when John Campbell, founder of the city of Springfield Illinois, sold his land to the U.S. Government for $5,000 in order to establish a permanent military presence in the county. With this purchase, Campbell agreed that the government could set up an arsenal in Springfield and maintain it there for 15 years. The first occupants of Pecan Row arrived just a few months after that date and began construction on their homes.
