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-miute
orientation video on the
building's history. The building
is fully accessible to persons
