IHPA: Historic Site Closures Likely If Funding Not Restored


Scaling back hours at some Springfield-area historic sites could be just the beginning of problems for local tourism. 

 

A spokesman for the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency says unless lawmakers restore the funding that was cut in this year’s budget, some sites may have to be closed indefinitely.  Appearing live on 970 WMAY, Chris Wills could not say how many sites or which ones might shut down, but he says the cuts would not affect the Lincoln Presidential Library or Museum. 

 

Several local sites, including the Old State Capitol, will go to four-day-a-week schedules after Labor Day.
