It’s a Greek Revival house that was the home of Abraham and Mary Lincoln 17 years. They bought it in 1844 for $1,200.
The house had been the home of Rev. Charles Dresser who performed the marriage Ceremony for Abe and Mary two years earlier in 1842.
Today it is the Lincoln Home National Historic Site. The home has been restored, and the look we see today is an interpretation of the year 1860 – the year of Lincoln’s election as President.
Highlights of that year of significance include Her husband receiving the Republican nomination for President on May 18th, and the next day they greet members of the notification committee in this home.
1860 also marks the last year the couple lived in the home.
OnÂ FEBRUARY 6, 1861 the Lincolns held a farewell reception; and departed for Washington on February 11.
