Springfield is where Abraham Lincoln honed his law and political career whilst raising his family before taking upt the US presidency and moving to Washington D.C. It is only fitting the city pays homage to this beloved American and his family. The granite monument is the final resting place of Abraham Lincoln, his wife, Mary and three of their four sons. The fourth son is buried in Arlington National Cemetery.
This touching landmark was completed in 1874 and serenely sits in Oak Ridge Cemetery. A bronze bust of Mr. Lincoln greets you outside the tomb and it is customary to rub his nose for luck.
