Hometown of Abe Lincoln

Monument in the center of town. Sultpure of young Abe.

Pretty amazing sculture. He was a tall man.

Stories of the artist who sculpted this piece. It reads: The bronze seated statue was created by Adolph W. Weinman as part of the 1909 Abraham Lincoln Centennial commemoration efforts. The statue was officially dedicated on May 30th 1909.

The artist sits underneath his work with a friend.

I had a few minutes and checked out this museum. The exhibits were all of Abe Lincoln and the significant people in his life as he grew up and as he served as President. It was a wax museum ran by a retired school teacher and principal.
