People Saving Places in Illinois

Landmarks Illinois, a statewide nonprofit that promotes historic preservation through advocacy and education, partnered with Kennedy-King College in Chicago to produce a series of videos that tell the inspiring stories of people saving historic places in Illinois. From Chicago to Carbondale, LI staff and Kennedy-King students traveled around the state to capture on film these historic preservation efforts.
