Springfield owes a lot to Abraham Lincoln and the Illinois Capitol Building. They put Springfield on the map in a way that few other cities of 115,\000 can match. Yet Springfield is much more than Lincoln's hometown or Illinois' capital. It boasts parks and nature preserves, war memorials and museums. It has one of Frank Lloyd Wright greatest homes and one of the world's largest carillons. Music and shopping flourish in intimate settings. Even when it comes to Lincoln, there's more than meets the eye. Sure, you can visit his home and presidential library, but you can also see where he shopped and played handball and visited friends - all the little things of day-to-day life.
