Here’s what other visitors said about President Lincoln’s Cottage this year:

The decision to emphasize Lincoln’s thoughts, ideas, and issues of the day instead of furnishings was inspired, and made the house so much more personable. Each visitor is able to picture the President as s/he wishes; I found the rooms crowded with meaning.  Thanks for a wonderful, relaxing experience!
-G. Thomason

We’d been told by a “friend of a friend” that your historic site is a must-see for us. I’ve been a longtime Lincoln admirer and decided to take in as many Lincoln sites in this, his bi-centennial year. …I have to say, of all of the sites that I visited this year, it was the Lincoln Cottage that brought President Lincoln back to life for me. 
-J. Bly

We look forward to seeing you soon!
