"Lincoln sites." Springfield Things to Do Tip by Devin_B

Springfield Things to Do: 75 reviews and 163 photos

1) His house. 2) His law office. 3) The old state capitol. 4) His tomb.
Lincoln has made Springfield one of the most visited cities in the world (honest!). Most of the sites are free, but you'll want to start at the visitors center near his home. There you can reserve a time to tour the house. The law office and old capitol building (where he gave his 'house-divided' speach) are both in the center of downtown. The tomb is in Oak Ridge Cemetary on the north side. There is a flag lowering ceremony every Tuesday evening throughout the summer held by a local Civil War re-enactment regiment.

Directions: Various locations...go to the visitors center for a map.

Review Helpfulness: 0.5 out of 5 stars
