A New Look

LI Website Refresh

In a taste of things to come, Landmarks Illinois has done a mini “refresh” of a select group of web pages using our new brand identity. The “refreshed” pages are mobile-friendly, easier to navigate, and clutter-free for better readability. Landmarks Illinois plans to redevelop the entire website in the coming year.


Richard H. Driehaus County Courthouse Initiative

New Film Presentation

View our new video about Landmarks Illinois' Richard H. Driehaus County Courthouse Initiative produced by photographer and architect Tom Rossiter and made possible in-part through his own in-kind donation. The County Courthouse Initiative was envisioned as a catalyst to promote pride in the historic courthouse and to inspire others to invest in their downtown courthouse square. After five years, and 18 grants in 17 counties valued over $700,000, we know that this program has made a difference. Look for our Courthouse Initiative Economic Impact Study soon. [Watch Video]

People Saving Places

Preservation in Action

Landmarks Illinois inspires and empowers people with what they need to save places that are important to them. Click here or the photo link below to watch a short video about the work of Landmarks Illinois which profiles three important projects and the people whose lives they have touched.

Preservation is about protecting the places that enhance our lives on a daily basis. Our architecture defines who we are and keeping that legacy is a gift to future generations.
