Historic site could get new owner

Posted:

Springfield - A historic cemetery could have a new owner.

 

The Oak Ridge Cemetery and home to Lincoln's Tomb could be taken over by a private company for profit. One cemetery company out of Pennsylvania has expressed an interest.

 

The city of Springfield subsidizes Oak Ridge at $400,000 a year and is looking to cut costs.

 

Mayor Mike Houston says the idea will be talked about in the budget process. No decision has been made.
