Grand Opening Ceremony Photo Album

The Grand Opening Ceremony on President’s Day, February 18, 2008, celebrated the completion of restoration on both the President Lincoln’s Cottage and the Robert H. Smith Visitor Education Center, the exhibits, and the landscape.  The weather was a breezy 70 degrees, and attendance reached standing-room-only.  After the ceremony, all 400 guests were able to get a sneak peak of the finished President Lincoln’s Cottage and Robert H. Smith Visitor Education Center.

Opening ceremony festivities included the 150th Pennsylvania Bucktail reenactors (representing Lincoln’s Presidential Guard), Kingsview Middle Schoolers, various speakers including former U.S. Senator Mike DeWine, and a rap performance.  View the official photo album on Flickr http://www.flickr.com/gp/10723523@N04/zrN35n.
