The Stephenson House is an important landmark in the establishment of Edwardsville as a center of government and commerce as the third oldest city in Illinois. Benjamin Stephenson also played an important role in the emergence of Illinois from a “territory” into the nation’s twenty-first state in 1818.
Groups can schedule a guided tour of the two-story Federal-style brick home with docents dressed in period costumes and enjoy a demonstration in the kitchen.
