Illinois House passes police headquarters bill March 31, 2007

Posted by Ron Warnick in Attractions, Preservation.

The Illinois State Senate approved a bill Friday that would transfer ownership of the historic Illinois State Police District 6 building from the state to Livingston County for $1, reported the Bloomington Pantagraph.

The Senate Bill 768 goes on to the House.

The pistol-shaped building, built on Route 66 near Pontiac in 1941, was recently added to the National Register of Historic Places. The long-vacant structure was recently declared state surplus, but the auction hadn’t yet been scheduled.

The idea behind giving the building to the county is to eventually turn it into a roadside park or museum.
