Preservationists List Old Rock Island Courthouse On Endangered List
(Springfield, IL) — Rock Island County’s old courthouse is on the state’s endangered list. Landmarks Illinois added the old courthouse to its 2018 list of endangered buildings. Rock Island County leaders say they can’t afford the 16-million-dollars it would take to rehab the building. Preservationists say tearing the courthouse down would be a shame. Landmarks listed the Thompson Center in Chicago and the Illinois State Fairgrounds on this year’s list as well.
