The park ranger who gave tour was very knowledgeable. Was fun listening to the different stories of the Lincoln family in the house. Definitely need to walk along the street to get the feel of the times.
I took the tour of the home which was led by a ranger since it is a NPS attraction. Much of the home is original or made to look as it did then. The tour was nice as she did not give TMI on each room. This is a must for sure.
This preserved home, and four square block neighborhood, of the only house ever owned by Abraham Lincoln is a great opportunity to see how Lincoln lived before he left for Washington.

This was the purpose of our visit to Springfield. Absolutely love what the NPS has done with the neighborhood.
