Leave a legacy for future generations
History comes alive in Springfield, where you can walk in the footsteps of our 16th President, Abraham Lincoln, as he did from 1837 to 1847 in the area of the Bicentennial Plaza – a REALTOR® Community Partnership. This tree-lined public space will revitalize the corridor, providing opportunities for REALTOR® and civic community events.
Donate a brick
Add your name to the brick for the a beautifully designed pedestrian walkway connecting Abraham Lincoln’s home to the east with the Illinois Executive Mansion and state Capitol to the west along the historic Jackson Street Corridor in downtown Springfield.
Your personalized brick donation to the REEF Bicentennial Education Fund will help fund the development of the Plaza’s educational interpretive panels: “Abraham Lincoln’s Vision for America, dedicated to the people who lived and worked here to advance that vision.” Also planned is a special marker for the 50th Anniversary of the Fair Housing Act on April 11, 2018.
