Old State Capitol

The Old State Capitol is a
reconstruction of Illinois' fifth
statehouse. The building
served as the seat of state
government and a center
of Illinois political life from
1839-1876 and featured
prominently in the lives
of President Lincoln and
Stephen A. Douglas. Lincoln
delivered his "House Divided"
speech in Representatives
Hall, and used the governor's
rooms as a headquarters
during the 1860 presidential
campaign. The building was
the scene of the assassinated
President's final laying-instate on May 3-4, 1865.
Visitors to the Old State
Capitol may take a 30-minute
interpreter-conducted tour or
view the rooms on their own.
Also available is a 15-minute
orientation video on the
building's history. The building
is fully accessible to persons
with disabilities.
