A little bit of history with 2018 marking the Bicentennial year of Illinois. Year 2018 also is the Bicentennial year for Washington County. On January 2, 1818, the Legislative Council and House of Representatives of Illinois Territory passed an act that separated what is now Washington and Clinton counties from St Clair County. The date of August 26, 1818 is the date that the first Illinois Constitution was signed in Kaskaskia. This date appears on the Seal of the State of Illinois. On December 3, 1818 is Illinois Statehood Day becoming the 21st state.
