Abraham Lincoln believed in the ideal that everyone in America should have the opportunity to improve their economic and social condition. Lincoln’s life was the embodiment of that idea. We know him as the sixteenth president but he was also a spouse, parent, and neighbor who experienced the same hopes, dreams, and challenges of life that are still experienced by many people today.
The Visitor Center is located at 426 South Seventh Street. The 4-block Lincoln Home Neighborhood is open to pedestrians and closed to vehicles.
