Abraham Lincoln’s Tomb or Lincoln’s Home in Springfield, Illinois

For The History Buff:  If you visit Springfield, you can see Lincoln’s massive tomb in Oak Ridge Cemetery, where Lincoln, his wife and three out of four sons rest. You can also visit Lincoln’s home, where he and Mary Todd Lincoln lived back in 1860 before he became the 16th President of the United States. The home actually contains some of its original trappings, and was restored to the appearance it had back in 1860.
