"In 1885 the General Assembly created the Illinois Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Home at Quincy to provide subsistence and a home for honorably discharged and disabled veterans of the Mexican and Civil Wars. In succeeding years Illinois veterans of all wars and veterans’ wives, mothers, and daughters became eligible for admission. In 1973 the General Assembly changed the home’s name to the Illinois Veterans’ Home. Since 1976 the Department of Veterans’ Affairs has administered the home." Illinois State Archives.
