Info

Join us for the Fall 2018 Lunch & Learn Series presented by UIS Alumni SAGE Society and the Illinois State Historical Society. These lunch-time programs will stimulate thinking as they build upon the University's tradition of open and intelligent dialogue. 

October 23: Governor's Mansion & Gardens
Justin Blanford, Curator, Illinois Governor's Mansion, will present A Gift to the People: The 162-year-old Governor's Mansion. Restoring the historic Springfield residence of the Illinois governor and first family was a huge undertaking. Now a museum with an education center, the mansion has reopened to the public and it's time to take a look inside!

Sue Massie of Massie, Massie & Associates, Landscape Architects, will present The Governor's Garden: What Goes Into Planning a Garden on a Grand Scale, and What Do You Plant for the Past and Future? Hear all that has gone into planting the celebrated and historic gardens of the Governor's Mansion.
