Lincoln Home Tours During Busy Season
Please be advised that tours of the Lincoln home fill rapidly during our busy summer season. We suggest that you visit the Lincoln Home National Historic Visitor Center early in the day for your best opportunity to receive a tour of the Lincoln home.
Prairies and Grasslands
Reminiscent of the pre-settlement landscape are some species in the neighborhood like the hackberry (Celtis occidentalis) and wild strawberries (Fragaria virginana), but overall, the Lincoln Home and neighborhood have been restored and maintained to reflect the years of Mr. Lincoln’s residency, from 1844 - 1861.
