Painting a Summertime Past

Experience the history of 1820 Illinois.  Stephenson House opens an enchanting window on cultural, political, and architectural developments during the early years of Illinois. Wander the gardens to discover heritage plants cultivated by our forebearers or take a hands-on history tour of the home.  The four-room home is an excellent example of architecture from the Federal period and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Illinois State Historic Preservation Agency includes it among only a handful of homes built in the first quarter of the 19th century that remain standing in the state. It is also considered the oldest brick home in Madison County.
