Midwest Living Review

Pay tribute and respects at the final resting places of President Lincoln, his wife and three of their four sons.

Oak Ridge Cemetery bears the proud responsibility of holding the 117-foot tomb dedicated in 1874 as the final resting place for the Lincolns. Funeral services for Abraham Lincoln were held on this site May 4, 1865.

The tomb's handsome marble-and-bronze interior and upper deck are open to the public and contain small-scale reproductions of important Lincoln statues, plaques with excepts of famous Lincoln speeches, the presidential flag and flags of the states in which the Lincoln family resided.

The site is open to the public throughout the year, but hours vary seasonally.
