  • This is where Lincoln departed Springfield and headed to DC - it is full of Presidential history. We went by, found a parking spot, and took some photos - they have two free flyers on a sign out...  more »
  • Memories of Abraham Lincoln on the campaign of 1860. Good video displays. Great building restoration.  more »

  • This is the place Lincoln departed from as he headed to take his appointment as President. It's a humble museum worth visiting. It smells really nice. You will get to see what a train station looked like back in the day and a cool safe which survived two fires.
  • Party of Lincoln Memorial Museum ticket fee and exact replica of what did in his day.
