Lincoln Home National Historic Site

Recommended
In 1837, Abraham Lincoln, as a young lawyer, moved to Springfield-the Illinois state capital-where he set up his law practice. There Lincoln met and married Kentucky socialite Mary Todd and purchased a house. Today you can tour this two-story brown clapboard Greek Revival structure- the only home Lincoln ever owned.
