Veteran Architect Takes First Citizen Honors


A Springfield architect who has had an enormous influence on the look of the community has been honored as this year’s State Journal-Register First Citizen. 

 

82-year-old Wally Henderson was the architect who designed the restoration of the Old State Capitol in the mid 1960s, when the historic building was taken apart and put back together brick-by-brick. 

 

He also designed the Municipal Plaza, including the bridge and fountain between the two Springfield municipal centers, as well as the Willard Ice Building and the Public Affairs Center at UIS.  Henderson also spearheaded the push to rename Capital Airport in honor of Abraham Lincoln.
