    1819 · State Capital moves to Vandalia
    Age 1
    Vandalia was founded in 1819 as a new capital because Kaskaskia was under the threat of floods. The history of the name Vandalia is uncertain. Under the law which Vandalia was founded states that the title of capital would not be moved from there for twenty years. Even though it was the capital it was never the most populous area in Illinois.

    1839 · From Swamp to Beautiful Place
    Age 21
    By 1829 Venus, Illinois had grown sufficiently and in 1832 was one of the contenders for the new county seat. However, the honor was awarded to a nearby city, Carthage. In 1834 the name Venus was changed to Commerce because the settlers felt that the new name better suited their plans. But during late 1839, arriving members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints bought the small town of Commerce and in April 1840 it was renamed Nauvoo by Joseph Smith Jr., who led the Latter-Day Saints to Nauvoo to escape persecution in Missouri. The name Nauvoo is derived from the traditional Hebrew language. It is notable that by 1844 Nauvoo's population had swollen to around 12,000 residents, rivaling the size of Chicago at the time. After the Latter-Day Saints left the population settled down toward 2,000 people.
