Anyway, it was a beautiful home and we enjoyed peeking into each room and seeing how these people lived. As for the placards, the kids found it very cool that we were able to read about President Lincoln. We were also able to see his famous tall, black hat and peer into the very same mirror he looked into before heading out to the theater on the fateful night of his death. There was something very special about looking into that mirror, like a little mental connection was made. History can be just so darn cool.
I'm sure this place looks amazing in the summer time, but there was something so fun about crunching through the snow, walking from the visitors center to the house. We were freezing outside, but the indoors felt so toasty warm. I know the Lincoln's used this house as a summer home, but I would have gladly house-sat for them in the winter.
No problem, Mr. Lincoln.
