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.
