    Although many people believe Chicago is the capitol of Illinois, it is actually the charming and historic city of Springfield. Besides being the capitol, Springfield is probably best known as being the city where the great American President Abraham Lincoln lived for 24 years of his life, and in fact is now home to the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum & Library, along with the most Lincoln-related sites in the country including his former home and his tomb. Other notable attractions in the city include Frank Lloyd Wright's Dana-Thomas House, the Illinois State Capitol and the Korean War National Museum.

    »Lincoln Home National Historic Site

    The Lincoln Home National Historic Site is the celebrated home of Lincoln, who lived here in the crucial years spanning from 1844 to 1861, prior to becoming the 16th President of the United States. The historic site preserves this Springfield, Illinois home. Unlike most lavish homes of other presidents, the Lincoln Home is inclined towards simplicity. However, it has been drawing large crowds ever since it was opened to the public. The prime reason behind this has been the fact that the ethnicity of the 19th-century home is still maintained under due observance. Accessible for tours between 8:00a to 5:00p, it offers extensive hours of visiting during the summer.
