Lincoln’s Law Office to be Reopened

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — The state’s budget crisis shuttered Abraham Lincoln’s former law office in Springfield. But city officials plan to reopen it on Saturday. Media outlets reports the first floor of the building will be the visitors’ center for the Springfield Convention and Visitors Bureau. Bureau tourism manager Jeff Berg says the city’s association with the 16th president and historic U.S. Route 66 brings visitors. He hopes the new center encourages them to see other historic sites.
