Come home
to history.
Springfield is a city that has always had a way of inspiring greatness. It is the capital
of Illinois.
It’s the place where Abraham Lincoln developed the ideas and strength of
character that would later preserve a nation.
Follow his footsteps from Lincoln’s New
Salem to the Lincoln-Herndon Law Office to the Old State Capitol. Come see, experience
and enjoy. No matter what your age, you will find a place to grow.
Lessons from the past.
Springfield
has always held a genuine appreci-
ation for the lessons of history. An
unusually rich selection of museums,
memorials, cemeteries and historic
sites help keep vital traditions alive.
Visit Camp Lincoln, Camp Butler
and the Army and Air National Guard
posts. Pay your respects at the final
resting place of Commander-In-Chief
Abraham Lincoln. Brief your group on
military history at the Illinois State
Military Museum, Air Combat Museum
and Oak Ridge Cemetery. For thou-
sands of military and civilian visitors
each year, the memories live on.
