LINCOLN FAMILY HOME: Look into the private life of our 16th President while touring the only home that Lincoln ever owned, restored to look as it did when the family lived there.

ILLINOIS OLD STATE CAPITOL: This exact replica of the building where Lincoln practiced law and gave his "House Divided" speech on slavery is also the place used as his campaign headquarters for the 1860 election and where he laid in state after his assassination.



ABRAHAM LINCOLN PRESIDENTIAL MUSEUM: As the most visited of all presidential libraries in the U.S., this museum includes 40,000 square feet of galleries, special effects theaters, and historic displays taking you from his simple beginnings to his extraordinary presidency and the legacy beyond.

LINCOLN'S TOMB: Pay your respects to the President and his family, laid to rest in Oak Ridge Cemetery. And, rub the bronze nose of the Lincoln statue - for luck!
