Oak Ridge Cemetery
1441 Monument Avenue Springfield, Sangamon Co, Illinois 62702 phone: 217-789-2340 Oak Ridge Cemetery is the largest cemetery in Illinois at 365 acres and is the second most visited cemetery in the United States. Home of President Abraham Lincoln's Tomb, this active cemetery's first burial was in 1858. The cemetery was officially dedicated on May 24, 1860 and it was reported that Abraham Lincoln and his wife were present at the dedication of the cemetery. Oak Ridge is the burial home of many settlers of Springfield and Sangamon County and state and local officials. For many years the cemetery was segregated as to both color and religion so some areas tend to represent one race, religion or social status. There are several war memorials and a newly dedicated area for the Home of the Friendless residents who were buried there in the late 1800s. Several cemeteries were closed and the remains moved to Oak Ridge over a span of many years. Those include: Hutchinson, Old City Graveyard, Avenue, Kelly, Lanterman, Lightfoot, Elliott, Dunn and Schamel cemeteries. Oak Ridge consists of over 50 sections and 75,000 burials. The office is open 8 a.m. 5:00 p.m. weekdays and 8:00 a.m. noon on Saturdays (March through November). The staff is very helpful in providing burial locations and should be contacted for plot information when requesting a photo. Other cemeteries that were moved to Oak Ridge Cemetery include Cotton Hill Cemetery, Springfield, Illinois; Clear Lake Cemetery, Springfield, Illinois; Old High School City Cemetery, Springfield, Illinois; Crowder Cemetery, Springfield, Illinois; Home of the Friendless Cemetery.
