IL State Armory


107/111 East Monroe Street
Springfield, IL

Present owner: State of Illinois 

Historical Landmark

Built in 1936, the exterior facades and the interior gathering space have been changed very little since its construction.

The structure is a good example of Art-Deco architecture, typical of the late 1920’s and 1930’s.  The Armory has been the site of Governors’ Inaugurals, state social and athletic programs, theatre, artistic and music productions as well as offices for the State military and police agencies.
