Background on the Soldiers' and Sailors' Home

In 1885, the 34th Illinois General Assembly passed legislation to establish a soldiers' and sailors' home for disabled Illinois veterans of the Mexican and Civil Wars. On June 1, 1886, Governor Richard Oglesby decided on Quincy as the site of the new home. On October 19th of that same year, the Illinois Soldiers' and Sailors' Home was formally dedicated. (The name was changed in June, 1973, to the "Illinois Veterans Home at Quincy" as it is known today.) The Home is the largest and oldest veterans home of the four in Illinois and one of the larger and older veterans homes in the country. The peak of membership was reached in 1909, when there were 1,654 members. Today, nearly 600 members call the facility home. Over 70 of the 102 counties in Illinois are represented within the current membership.
