Build Your Own Model

At the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency, you can build your own model of a historic Illinois home or building. For example, build a model of the Gardner Museum in Quincy, a Romanesque Revival style building designed in 1888, or the Old Main building in Galesburg, where Lincoln and Douglas held debates in 1858. Print out the model and construct the building by adhering the building pictures to cardstock, cutting them out, and fitting them together. There are tabs to secure the pieces. Lots of directions.
