New Salem Village / 9:00AM – 12:00PM
Just north of Springfield about seventeen miles is the 1830s log homes and workshops of New Salem Village where 21-28 year old Abe Lincoln lived and found his footing in life. Here is where he would make his mark in life as a land surveyor, postmaster general, and the owner of a dry goods store. Here is where Lincoln would study law and become a lawyer and make his first political run for office. Explore the historic village under the canopy of the forest and learn about Lincoln’s life that would shape his future as president.
