16th President’s original slippers on view at President Lincoln’s Cottage through December 2014.
July 1, 2014. While Abraham Lincoln’s public image was defined by his signature stovepipe hat, his private, more casual nature is highlighted in the newest exhibit at President Lincoln’s Cottage in Washington, DC. Meetings at the Cottage were often impromptu and informal, and Lincoln was known to greet guests while wearing carpet slippers. An original pair of Lincoln’s own slippers is on public display at President Lincoln’s Cottage from July 1, 2014 through December 2014; the slippers are on loan from the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center in Fremont, OH.
