Destination of the Week: Springfield, IL-Old State Capitol

Destination of the Week: Springfield, IL-Old State Capitol

If the visiting the current state capitol is not enough for you, the old state capitol should more than satisfy you.  Built in 1837, it is hard to imagine a young Illinois nearly completely run from this one small building.  While guided tours sometimes can just slow down a visit, I found this tour helpful in pointing out details I would have never noticed.  Hours can be limited on the weekend so plan accordingly.

Address:
1 Southwest Old State Capitol Plaza, Springfield, IL 62701
