Lincoln's Tomb Interior To Be Closed In October; Renovation Could Take Six Months


The interior of Lincoln’s Tomb at Springfield’s Oak Ridge Cemetery will be off-limits to visitors for up to six months, starting in October, as a major renovation project gets underway. 

 

Springfield tourism officials describe the work as a “full restoration,” including a complete revamp of the lighting system throughout the tomb. 

 

The tomb’s interior will be closed to visitors after October 5th, and could be closed until April of 2014, although the work may be completed sooner.  Officials say the exterior will still be accessible for people to take pictures or rub the nose of the iconic Lincoln bust outside.
