Fort de Chartres State Historic Site
It is amazing how much history is around you and most people don't even know it. Fort de Chartres State Historic Site is just about an hour south of here. I've seen it on the map but when I actually got around to visiting it, well it was much more than I ever expected. The oldest standing building in Illinois is within its walls. Being there reminded me of visiting a castle keep in Europe.
