Next Step for Historic Sites Could be Shutting Down


Reduced hours are looming next month for more than a dozen state historic sites… including several in and near Springfield.

 

But the next step could be full shutdowns at some sites. That warning comes from state Historic Preservation Agency spokesman Chris Wills.

 

Wills says the cutbacks that take effect after Labor Day won’t make up for the 19% funding cut the agency sustained in the current state budget.

 

It’s not known yet how many sites might close, or which ones may be targeted, but Wills says the cuts won’t affect the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum.
