“A good time was had by all!”
The tapping of telegraph keys and the click clack of a model Pullman train circling the Welcome Center, the bleating of the goats and the laughter of children, carols played on the organ in the house dressed in its holiday finery; they are the sounds of fun and wonder and yes, learning.
We continue the celebration of Abraham Lincoln’s birth and it’s evident by our permanent collection of artifacts on display in an insightful interpretation of our best loved president and one of his best known speeches: “The American Ideal: Abraham Lincoln and the Second Inaugural”.
