What Bert Has To Say About Springfield Metro Area

Springfield, the state capital, is a quiet agricultural center with a strong government presence. This quiet town with a fairly well-educated population has a substantial heritage built around Abraham Lincoln’s residence and activities. It is “altogether fitting” that the Lincoln memorabilia should be mixed into such a traditional, mid-American city.
