Bringing State Landmarks To Your Phone

The state’s preservation agency is teamed up with the app Vamonde and Kennedy-King College to create video tours of historical places around Illinois, including Shrine the Christ King in Woodlawn and historic homes in Englewood.

Vamonde is an app that aims to provide travelers and residents a chance to have“adventures” in cities or neighborhoods by listening to the history and interesting details about the place. 

We talk to the team about the places and the creation of the videos.
