The Illinois State Capitol, located in Springfield, Illinois, is the building that houses the executive and legislative branches of the government of the U.S. state of Illinois. The current structure is the sixth to serve as capitol since Illinois became a part of the United States in 1818. The capitol is in the architectural style of the French Renaissance and was designed by Cochrane and Garnsey, an architecture and design firm based in Chicago. Ground was first broken for the new capitol on March 11, 1869, and it was completed twenty years later for a total cost of $4,500,000

HI Lunie, I'm not sure why other than there seem to have been other cities that were fighting for the rights to be the capitol city. The construction was also halted at one time over some scandals surrounding the construction.
Yes BK, we did take a tour of both the old capitol and the new one. I will post a few inside pictures of each later on.

Why did it take that long to finish?
