Destination of the Week: Springfield, IL-Lincoln Home National Historic Site

Destination of the Week: Springfield, IL-Lincoln Home National Historic Site

The National Park Service takes full advantage of the four blocks surrounding the Lincoln’s Springfield home.  The visitor center, which feels a little dated, includes orientation video (watch it!), museum, store, washrooms, and ticket office.  A few of the homes in the park are open and include exhibits on the community, the Lincoln family’s life, and the actual home itself.  The home tour, provided by a park ranger, is tight, informative, and enjoyable.

Address:
426 S 7th St, Springfield, IL 62701
