2014 Springfield Sports Meeting Planner Guide - page 14-15

Walk where Lincoln’s long
stride once passed.
Springfield is the proud home of the world’s most
comprehensive collection of Lincoln-related sites. Walking
in his footsteps your group will grow in understanding of the
ideas and events that made him great. The crown jewel of
these historic treasures is the Abraham Lincoln Presidential
Library and Museum, a $115 million tribute where the
latest audiovisual technologies bring the life and times of
our 16th President into fresh perspective. Ask us to set up
a personalized tour of Lincoln sites to suit your group’s time
frame and tastes.
A Capitol idea.
Catch the action and intrigue of today’s state government in
action at the Illinois State Capitol. Or stand where Lincoln
stood in the Old State Capitol when he gave his epic “House
Divided” address.
Need a few warm-ups between games?
Get into gear with the lifestyle in Springfield. Unearth a
treasure in an antique shop or stroll through our collection
of unique museums. Care to indulge your interest in historic
Route 66? Check out America’s Main Street, one of the
