Lincoln Home National Historic Site

7/28/2006 Headed into town and parked at the Lincoln Home NHS [Abraham Lincoln Home NHL] at opening; got ticket for first tour 15 minutes later. Already hot and humid! Nice talk by Ranger on the grounds of the 2X2 block area with original homes and look of how it was when Lincoln lived here. On into the house where Lincoln lived 17 years before heading to D.C. as President. Saw the original desk where he wrote the “house divided” speech among others and nicely restored rooms with good talk.
