New Light Shines on Lincoln's Tomb

By Steve Breidenbach

Over the years, the structure at the Lincoln Tomb and War Memorials Historic Site, including an entrance rotunda, burial chamber and corridors as well as a monument rising 117 feet from ground level, has undergone renovations and major upgrades. The most recent work wrapped up in April 2014, in time for the heavy spring student-touring season. Prior to this most recent project, lighting inside the tomb did not provide the dignified level of illumination required, and didn't blend well with wall and ceiling finishes. Some lighting either was not functioning or was woefully out of date when it did work. In fact, some of the interior lighting dated from the early 1970s. The overall project to repair and restore finishes in the tomb interior and add LED lighting to address illumination concerns was spearheaded by the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency, with lead architect RATIO Architects of Champaign, Ill., and EverGreene Architectural Arts of Oak Park, Ill., as material conservators. BRiC Partnership, Belleville, Ill., served as consulting engineer, which included lighting, and B & B Electric, of Springfield, performed the fixture installation.
