Discover where President Lincoln’s sons hung their stockings for Santa and how the family celebrated the holidays by taking a Christmas tour through the Lincoln Home in Springfield.
The house, located on South Seventh Street, is adorned with typical 1860s holiday decorations such as greenery, poinsettias, cloved orange pyramids and ropes of cranberries. Visit this winter to find out what the Lincolns may have given each other as gifts, what foods were on their holiday menu and why the family didn’t have a Christmas tree.
