Legacy Projects

governors mansion throughout history

​​​​​​As we celebrate our Bicentennial, Illinois will look to the future to create and support statewide initiatives that foster innovation, promote education, and provide greater opportunity for all across the state.

Projects could include refurbishing libraries, renovating historical sites, building Bicentennial parks, creating mentoring programs, building new commemorative exhibits, and more.

We will work with our partner agencies, charitable foundations, sponsors, and other organizations to commemorate our history and create or support programs that impact the quality of life in the state and invest in our future.
