Did You Know?

Robert Todd Lincoln

In 1900, Robert Todd Lincoln gave $1000 for the care of his grandmother’s grave. This stimulated the Spencer County to appropriate $800 for the purchase of 16 acres surrounding the gravesite. This eventually led to the establishment of Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial.
