House Information

The Elijah Iles House

Abraham Lincoln will be making regular visits to the Elijah Iles House this summer on Wednesdays and Saturdays as part of the “Looking for Lincoln” program sponsored by History Comes Alive. Each Wednesday, starting at 1:30 p.m., Mr. Lincoln, played by actor Fritz Klein, will talk about his own funeral and also his hopes for the remainder of his second term had he not been murdered. On Saturdays, starting at 3:00 p.m., Mr. Lincoln will conduct a workshop for kids and adults on how to make the homemade toys he would have played with as a child on the western frontier in the early 1800s. The program runs through August 8.
