Abraham Lincoln's House
We all know Lincoln as the statesman, an accomplished orator who is regarded as one of the greatest presidents of the U.S. As historians delve into his life more, the man behind the greatness is coming more into public view. His house in Springfield, IL is the embodiment of his life as a private man, father, and husband. The only home he ever owned, purchased in 1844, is quite humble by today's standards. Along with the home, other structures within a few blocks are also preserved and maintained by the National Park Service.
