There is history to be found all over the state of Illinois if you know where to look. The Vandalia Historic Society celebrates their past by holding Candlelight Christmas Tours. Site Representative Kim Lake explains what the event is.
This is more than just walking around. Lake says there will be an opportunity to have some refreshments and dive into the history of the Vandalia Statehouse.
The Historic Society puts a lot of effort into bringing the history of the building to life. According to Lake, there is some history involving President Abraham Lincoln.
