The home where Abraham and Mary Lincoln lived for 17 years (1844-1861) has been restored to the way it looked in 1860, as have the houses around it.
The black bunting on the front of the house was placed there to let people know there had been a death in the family living there. This year marks the 150th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's death.
Here are some photos of the inside of the house. Most of my photos are needlework related (surprise, surprise--LOL).
I wonder if anyone else takes photos of carpeting.
And here are some views of the historic district.
There is so much more to see in Springfield than I could fit into just a few hours, so hopefully I can make a return visit someday.
