This is the year to get your brick on Bicentennial Plaza – a REALTOR® Community Partnership. Order by May 15 for your brick to be placed by July 4, 2019, the 200th anniversary of the day the 21-star flag became the official U.S. flag recognizing the admission of Illinois as the 21 state in the union.

Four 21-star flags fly on Bicentennial Plaza, a beautifully designed pedestrian walkway connecting the Lincoln Home National Historic Site with the Illinois Governor’s Mansion and state Capitol along the Jackson Street corridor in downtown Springfield.

Your personalized brick donation to the REEF Bicentennial Education Fund will help fund the educational interpretive panels featured on the Plaza. The Plaza is dedicated to “Abraham Lincoln’s Vision for America, dedicated to the people who lived and worked here to advance that vision.” 

The Illinois Real Estate Educational Foundation (REEF) is a Section 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Your donation may qualify as a charitable deduction for federal income tax purposes.
