2: Lincoln Home National Historic Site
Abraham Lincoln only owned one home and he lived there with his wife, Mary, for seventeen years. People have been able to tour this home since 1887 and they learn about the life of Lincoln as a lawyer, politician, and finally President of the United States. Anyone who goes on a tour of the house will find themselves seeing the formal parlor, sitting room, dining room, guest room, Abraham Lincoln’s bedroom, Mary Lincoln’s bedroom, child’s room, help’s room, kitchen, the backyard, and outbuildings.
