Renovations on hold at historic site


Springfield – Extensive renovations to the Lincoln Home National Historic site have been put on indefinite hold.


Due to lack of funding in Springfield renovations will not start, but it is important to note the lack of funding is not the result of budget cuts that went into effect Friday. A long-term master plan was approved last year to update the visitor's center and maintenance facilities. They also hoped to have more room for parking.


Site Superintendent, Dale Phillip says the cuts could mean longer waits for tours.
