Homecoming at President Lincoln’s Cottage

First up, bring your family to run, walk and play where President Lincoln’s family did during the Civil War. President Lincoln’s Cottage was home-away-from-home for the Lincolns, and now the historic site and museum plays host to both a 5K run and a day of family activities like arts and crafts, pony rides and a picnic. The event is free, but you can also take a guided tour of the house at regular prices.
