Great Western Vacation Day 2- New Salem, Illinois

About 20 miles out of Springfield is the reconstructed village of New Salem-which is now an Illiinois State Historical Park. Abraham Lincoln spent his early adulthood here. Had to run up to see it since we were so close. It was underwhelming. Glad I went but one of those -one time is enough places. Not a whole lot going on there.

The attached picture is of the store Lincoln ran while living in New Salem-where he lost a lot of $$$$
