Old State Cemetery


Bronze markers give biographical information about prominent citizens from the earliest history of the community.

On June 12, 1823, the Third General Assembly conveyed to the City of Vandalia one and a half acres of land to be used as a burial ground. One-half acre was to be reserved for members of the legislature who might die while serving at the Capitol in Vandalia, should weather prevent their transfer home for burial. Four legislators and one Federal Judge were buried there. The Old State Cemetery is located at the south end of Third Street in Vandalia, Illinois.
