On the Lincoln Trail

Old State Capitol Building
Several times a year, my partner Joyce Faulkner and I get together to work on books and marketing. We are currently in Vandalia, IL, a town new to both of us.

Vandalia is off of I-70, on the Lincoln trail and is home to the oldest existing state capitol building in Illinois. Built in 1836, it is actually the second state capitol. The building and grounds are beautiful and open to tourists.

Mother of the Trail statue
On one corner of the grounds is the "Mother of the Trail" statue, honoring pioneer women.

The town is filled with interesting little shops, beautiful churches and homes showcasing multiple architectural styles.

We ate a delicious dinner at Los Amigos Mexican Restaurant. We loved the chips and guacamole.
