In the heart of our country, on the edge of the city he called home, is the final resting place of President Abraham Lincoln, his wife, and three of their children. Built with donations from across America, the Lincoln Tomb honors the memory of our nation's greatest president and those who struggled with him toward a new birth of freedom. We invite you to join us in honoring and remembering the Lincoln family with a tour of the interior space of the Lincoln Tomb.
At Lincoln Home National Historic Site you can follow in the footsteps of the father, husband, lawyer, and statesman who led the nation through the turbulent Civil War and fought for the ideals of freedom and democracy. Get a glimpse into the life and stories of the man who aspired to turn the war into a ‘new birth of freedom.’
Center of Illinois government. The building is topped with a 405-foot dome and is a convention of Renaissance Revival and Second Empire Style
The Old State Capitol, a reconstruction of Illinois' statehouse from 1840 to 1876. During the twentieth century's civil rights movement, its restorers faithfully recreated the building in which John Jones and Frances Gage worked to expand the meaning of freedom and Abraham Lincoln delivered his famous "House Divided" speech.
The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum is the official library and museum of the 16th U.S. President. Located in Springfield Illinois.
