Architectural Gems

​It is not just people who have important stories to share. Historic homes and buildings often have their own story to tell, a story that is often central to the history of Illinois.  This project is dedicated to collecting those stories, told by those who know these architectural gems best. Whether it be a prominent state building or a private home of a not so private person, the memories of these buildings, and the accounts of those who lived their lives there are worth preserving. They are part of the fabric of Illinois’s history.
