Mission Monday: Presidential Visits

In honor of Presidents' Day today, we wanted to share some photos and tidbits we learned from recent visits to a few Abraham Lincoln sites nearby. 

One of DSC's Community First groups, Central Illinois Tourism, visited the Lincoln Home National Historic Site in Springfield and saw the first and only home Abraham Lincoln owned and lived in for the 17 years leading up to his presidency. Lincoln purchased this home for $1,500 in 1844 and much of the original foundation, structure, and walls remain!!

The group also visited the Museum of the Grand Prairie in Mahomet. There, they learned about Lincoln's time as a lawyer in Illinois. 

The group has become very interested in the history of our central Illinois area, and their curiousity has grown as they've inquired about history outside of the group. They have enjoyed sharing all that they've learned with their friends and family!
