On February 10, 2018 Special Places to See would for you to join us to celebrate Lincoln's Birthday at his summer White House--the Lincoln Cottage. We will tour the house with a docent and it is an interactive presentation as we go from room to room. You will learn about the desk and so much more. Did you know that this was the first Summer White House? There is a sculpture of Lincoln standing by his horse in front of the Cottage. This is the second sculpture of Lincoln with a horse that I have discovered in my excursions.
