History & Purpose

The Lincoln Monument Association was created to promote awareness of the historic heritage of the Lincoln Tomb State Historic Site within Oak Ridge Cemetery in Springfield, Illinois. The association supports interpretive and educational programs, preservation efforts, special events and demonstrations, volunteer programs and the continued care of the historic site.

The LMA follows in the footsteps of the original association, the National Lincoln Monument Association, which was created immediately after President Lincoln’s assassination in April 1865 to raise funds to build a final resting place “which would fitly illustrate his virtues and renown”. Donations were collected from across America over the next several years, and the NLMA oversaw the design and construction of the martyred President’s memorial.

The National Lincoln Monument Association was disbanded when the last member passed away in 1894, and the tomb passed into the ownership and care of the State of Illinois.
