The little neighborhood they have set up is really beautiful. I loved all the old houses. They made us both think of our first apartment in the city. We realized that most of the houses in both neighborhoods were built in about the same time period, 1820-1830's. That would explain it! This is only a small sample of the houses there. There are so many more beautiful ones!
They said that this is kind of what Lincoln's house would have looked like when he first bought it.
There was such beautiful architecture and woodwork!
I had to pull a mom and make these people stop so I could take their picture. They were headed to the of plot of land by the Lincoln house to show some kids toys of the era. Considering that it got up around 90 degrees that day, I have to imagine that they got quite warm!
It was a fun stop. I was so honored to be able to walk through his house.
We also walked a few blocks and wandered through the Lincoln museum. I didn't manage to take any pictures there, but I highly recommend it. It was a great stop!
