Old Capitol Work Nearing Completion

Illinois has two capitol buildings in Springfield.


The oldest one dates to 1840 and was used for 36 years before the “new” Capitol building was constructed. A portion of the old capitol has been undergoing some renovation work on the dome and other parts of the roof. Justin Blandford with the Department of Natural Resources say that work is about wrapped up.



The Old State Capitol is open and ready for visitors.
