The Capital Of Illinois And A Great Historic City
About Springfield Today
Springfield Illinois is a great city located in the center of the state. Geographically it is actually closer to St Louis Missouri than it is to Chicago. It serves as the Capital of the state, which is confusing to many people, because the majority of people elsewhere only think of Chicago. The city has a population of around 120,000 and has a mostly stable economy based upon the fact that the number one employer for the city is the State Of Illinois, which only occasionally shuts down. The economy there is also bolstered by other non factory employers such as those in the medical industry including Memorial Health Systems, St John’s Hospital and SIU School Of Medicine.
