Tuesday's Treasures

Tom hosts Tuesday's Treasures.

April 2015 - Hodgenville Kentucky

I was working my my recap of 2015 (finally finished a couple of weeks ago) and came across these photos taken last year when we were driving home from LAX to Toronto.

Click here to see a mini Lincoln Memorial with Lincoln's cabin inside.

The Lincoln Museum is located in Hodgenville, KY three miles from Abraham Lincoln's birthplace on Sinking Spring Farm at the Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historical Park.




A series of life-size dioramas, period artifacts, and a superb collection of wax figures brings to life the major events in Lincoln's life.


From the "Cabin Years" to "Ford's Theatre" and the years between, visitors of all ages enjoy this close-up experience with one of the world's greatest leaders.









The second level of the museum features a variety of exhibits, including: rare newspaper clippings, campaign posters, and Lincoln memorabilia. A Lincoln art gallery on the second floor is filled with paintings, drawings, and other artworks related to the Lincoln era.

  1. I was going to say at least they don't have Booth sneaking up behind him in the theatre box, but lo and behold...

    I'm re-reading a book on the hunt for Booth. It's been awhile since I last read it.

  3. We were in Springfield, IL in May 2015 and visited the Lincoln Library and Museum and their home there. Didn't make it to KY so thanks for sharing this.
