Description

This is a copy of a blueprint for the restoration of the Old State Capitol Building in Springfield, Illinois, which took place from 1966 through 1969. The public areas of the Old State Capitol were reconstructed to resemble the appearance of the building in 1860, when President-elect Abraham Lincoln last saw the capitol prior to his departure to Washington, D. C. This is a duplicate of ID number 71.2009.081.1745. Part of the Lincoln Financial Foundation Collection, courtesy of the Indiana State Museum
