Historic Sites to Scale Back Hours of Operation Because of Lack of Funding


More than a dozen Illinois historic sites… including several in and around Springfield… will scale back their hours right after the Labor Day weekend, to make up for a significant shortfall in state funding.

 

The budget approved by lawmakers this spring did not include enough money for a full year of operations.

 

So the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency is putting those sites on a reduced schedule. Sites including the Old State Capitol, Lincoln’s Tomb, and the Dana-Thomas House will only be open four days a week, starting September 3rd.

 

And Lincoln’s New Salem will move to a five-day-a-week schedule two months earlier than usual.
