North American Van Lines: The Best of Springfield Moving Companies

As the capital of Illinois, Springfield is a historical city of great importance to the state government and the famous home to Abraham Lincoln. The 19th president of the U.S. lived in Springfield in 1837 until he went to the White House. Here you’ll find an array of rich historical attractions that capture the life and experiences of this American hero.

Despite being the capital, Springfield is the seventh-largest city in the state with a population of around 118,000, as of the 2012 U.S. Census.  The economy is characterized by government jobs, which constitute a large percentage of the city’s workforce.

Residents experience a four-season climate. During the summer, temperatures get as high as the mid-80s and in the winter, they average the low-30s.

Attractions and activities in Springfield

Many of the famous tourist attractions revolve around Abraham Lincoln. Check out his boyhood stomping grounds at the Lincoln Home National Historic Site, which  includes his two-story house. It was the only one Lincoln ever owned. Be sure to visit the world-class Lincoln Presidential Museum where you can learn about the experiences that shaped the future leader of the U.S.

Check out another side of Springfield’s roots at the Illinois State Museum, which traces travel through time from the beginning of life on Earth all the way to the days of the first European settlers. The best part? Free admission. Another popular attraction is the Dana-Thomas House, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.
