About 170 years ago, when Abraham Lincoln was beginning his career in politics in what is now the Vandalia Statehouse, candles were the only way to light up the building. That’s what visitors to the Statehouse this Saturday will experience.
The Statehouse, which is Illinois’ oldest existing capitol, will host its Christmas Open House from 4:30-6:30 p.m. on Saturday.
The thing that draws most people to that holiday event is special Christmas ornament being given to the first 100 families to sign the guest register.
