Hometown Pride: Our Stories

What is your favorite part of your hometown? We decided the best experts are you- Sangamon County, Illinois residents- people who cheered on the “Baby Birds,” rue I-55 rush-hour traffic, who grew up learning about Abraham Lincoln in Illinois and have banded together to help each other during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Sangamon Experience would like you to share your thoughts about your hometown by answering the questions below. Please answer as many as you can in detail, but don't feel obligated to answer them all if you don't want to.
