Lincoln in Indiana

After a day of touring in Lexington & Hodgenville KY my is to travel north cross the mighty Ohio and overnight in Spencer County, Indiana ( I might actually spend the night in Santa Claus, IN

Southern Indiana is another location rich in early Lincoln history. Abraham Lincoln spent 14 of his most formative years-from age 7 to 21-in Southern Indiana.

Today this region of Indiana offers Lincoln attractions that include his boyhood home and some of the most extensive collections of his life and times found anywhere in the world. Energy permitting I hope to take in a live evening performance at the Lincoln Amphitheater. In honor of his 200th birthday they are debuting a new story about young Abe this summer.

Then it's time to head west to Illinois.
