In 1984, the state of Illinois passed the County Historic Preservation Act, giving counties the authority to establish historic preservation commissions.

The Act called upon counties to:

  • Identify, protect, preserve, and restore features of historic significance
  • Foster educational interest and pride in the past
  • Promote economic development through historic tourism
  • Insure harmonious development
