    We visited Lincoln Cottage a few weeks ago — had a really nice time. It was cool seeing the path Lincoln took back and forth to the White House, and to check out all the old maps to see what was (and wasn’t) around back in those days.

    • I visited a few times a while back and I agree-it’s a really fun place to visit. The second two times I went I took out-of-town visitors and they really enjoyed it because it was not something they would have done on their own.
