People Saving Places

By reusing places of the past, we are creating a better future for Illinois.


Landmarks Illinois inspires people to save historic places that matter. Emerging from the fight to save the Chicago Stock Exchange Building, today Landmarks Illinois is a statewide nonprofit organization serving thousands of members, real estate professionals, property owners and policymakers. We provide expertise, funding and inspiration to individuals, corporations and communities across Illinois.

Landmarks Illinois has awarded nearly $42,000 to 10 historic preservation projects around the state in the latest round of grant funding through the organization’s Preservation Heritage Fund and the Landmarks Illinois WWI Monument Preservation grant programs. Read our press release on the news.
