This was not the first state capitol (it was in New Salem) but was the one in use when Lincoln was in the Illinois House. It is lovingly restored to its mid-nineteenth century appearance and makes a great companion visit to the Lincoln Home. The Illinois legislature met here recently for a while during the renovation of the current state capitol.
A must-see on a visit to Springfield.
