Happy Presidents Day!
On our way to St. Louis a few years ago we spent an afternoon in Springfield, IL, exploring Abraham Lincoln’s hometown. Opened in 2005, the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum is a must for all visitors, with great exhibits on Lincoln’s life and career, and the Civil War. We also enjoyed walking around the Lincoln Home National Historic Site – a preserved neighborhood where you can tour his house. For fans of architecture, Springfield is also the home of the Frank Lloyd Wright’s Dana-Thomas House (a definite stop for us on a return trip).
