Springfield Things to Do: 75 reviews and 163 photos
Throughout downtown Springfield you'll find over 30 statues and sculptures that attempt to depict life as it was in the 1850's when Abraham LIncoln last lived here.
Each exhibit has a medalion, and visitors are encouraged to get a 'rubbing' of each one.
Just North of downtown lies the final resting place of Abraham, Mary Todd, Tad, Eddie and Willie Lincoln.
You can enter the tomb and read many of Lincoln's famous speeches on the walls. They also have scale models of the numerous Lincoln sculptures from around the country.
Directions: Go North of town along Walnut street, and turn into Oak Ridge Cemetary. You'll see signs.
