Illinois' history is as vast as this great country of ours
From the earthen-mound remnants at Cahokia Mounds to the forts and homes of the early French inhabitants. Homes, court houses, cottages, mansions and memorials of the rugged and stalwart individuals that make up the rich history of Illinois. It is also deeply rooted in the legacy of one the greatest US presidents - Abraham Lincoln. Illinois has a rich and noble historical heritage with more than 2.5 million annual visitors.
Save Illinois History has been founded as a vehicle to continue to support, educate and raise awareness of our lush Illinois history.
Save Illinois History has been created as a foundation to support The Historic Sites of Illinois. We are currently concentrating on The Illinois Historic French District. This includes - Fort de Chartres, The Cahokia Court House, The Menard Home and Old Fort Kaskaskia. Initially, we will raise money for the sites in the Historic French District so that they can stay operational. In addition, as our foundation grows we will reach out to the other Illinois Historic Sites that are in need.
Our mission is to raise awareness of Illinois history through financially supporting, educating and keeping operational the great historic sites of Illinois.
