Notes
Survey number HABS IL-1181
Building/structure dates: 1872 initial construction
Significance: Contemporary annals (1872) speak of the newly erected building at St. Francis Solanus College and the "Pride of the Prairie." That same building, united with the middle section (1898) and west wing (1895), is the present structure called Francis Hall. While the "Prairie" part of its earlier title is no longer valid, a justifiable pride can be taken in the enduring presence of this stately, Victorian Gothic, nineteenth century building located in the center of an attractive college campus in an urban area of Quincy...Interior modifications have been made, but these were made in the interest of strengthening and maintaining the structure and adapting it for effective learning and teaching.
