HISTORY & MUSEUMS

Southernmost Illinois has a long and rich history, from which many buildings, forts, and monuments still stand, including civil war relics and churches over a century old. Visitors can get a detailed look at the history of the region in the Safford Memorial Library in Cairo, full of antique documents and painting, or at The Old Depot in Tamms, an original Chicago railroad depot restored as a museum.
