Macon County Court House Ken Kimberly Gotta tell you! Decatur was sort of “The Gem” of Central Illinois in the 1800s and 1900s. Some amazing Architecture! I realize that even “IF” structures are saved as “Historical Sites”, they still must be brought up to code. And not just the wiring and plumbing. OSHA, ADA, EPA, et al. Very sad that we (Decatur) have lost so many structures over the decades/century++.
