Everyone In Illinois Should See What’s Inside The Walls Of This Abandoned Fort
Long before Illinois became a state, this land was occupied by French colonists, who constructed four forts here, starting in 1720. Today, you can visit the Fort de Chartres to get a glimpse into what life at this fort was like back in the 18th century.
