Photos and History
Camp Grant was actually two camps. The first, built in 1917 and dismantled in 1921. The Illinois National Guard occupied the grounds from 1924 to 1935. The camp was rebuilt in 1940 at a  cost of  9 million. Most of the buildings that you see in the 1917-1920 photos were gone by 1940,
