Lincoln's New Salem..........
This is the Lincoln-Berry store where Abe was a part owner (and he wasn't a very good store-keeper either!)
This gentlemen was making those chairs you see. The one on the right was finished and he was making the one one the left. He makes them entirely by hand with period tools.
The inside of one of the cabins.
This is the mill. Very interesting and it's a ways away from the village and you actually walk on a covered bridge across the highway to get to it. This is where we got horrified.....The decay of our society as a whole never ceases to amaze and dismay me. Adults with no respect are raising children with even less. This is an historic site and a treasure to our state as well as our nation. I'm going to show you a particular piece of grafitti and please keep in mind that this was the LEAST of it.

Till next time, I hope you are all fit and fab!
