Why Our Members Love Landmarks Illinois...

Graham Grady, Chicago

"I love Landmarks Illinois because it saves the places that make Chicago Chicago. Through adaptive reuse and guidance on accessing public and private resources, LI has a head for business in utilizing economic development tools that benefit communities and property owners alike. LI is a unique force - statewide - in preservation and in placemaking for yesterday, today and tomorrow."
(Landmarks Illinois Board of Directors)

Donna Kieso, Somonauk

"I’m a member of Landmarks Illinois because I love historic buildings, and when I first joined, I was a tour guide at the Farnsworth House. My lifelong interest in architecture was sparked as a young adult by my aunt who took me on a walking tour of Chicago and encouraged my curiosity of older buildings. Today, I want to pass on an appreciation of historic places to my grandchildren.”
(Retired tour guide and quilt maker)

"We are members because we care about historic landmarks in our community. We value Landmarks Illinois' energy and enthusiasm to remind us of why it is worth saving historic places in our community, and LI's programs and initiatives provide the tools to make it happen. We are proud to support Landmarks Illinois so that our daughter has the opportunity to learn and appreciate Illinois' historic landmarks as much as we do."

“As a suburban resident who is originally from downstate Illinois, I value that LI provides assistance to every community in Illinois. Through advocacy and education outreach, LI provides the resources and support for individuals to preserve the places we all love. The mission of Landmarks Illinois is of principal importance for every citizen from a fiscal, cultural and conservation standpoint.”
