The creators of this website have co-authored a book about the Illinois Statehouse showcasing many never-before published photos of the Capitol. The Illinois Statehouse is available at several Springfield locations, among which are those that have kindly hosted book signings for us over the last several months. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to the staff at the following Springfield locations: The Dana-Thomas House, Prairie Archives, The Illinois State Historical Society, Sam's Club, The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, Barnes and Noble Booksellers & the Lincoln Home Visitor's Center. We have been honored to be at each site. Many thanks also to those who purchased books, or just stopped by to share a story or discuss the Statehouse.
