"The Reuben Moore Home State Historic Site stands among the remnants of what is known as the Farmington settlement. It is about one mile north of Lincoln Log Cabin, the home of Abraham Lincoln's father and stepmother. In late 1856 Reuben Moore built the house and moved in with his wife, Matilda Hall (Abraham Lincoln's stepsister) and five children from their previous marriages. Matilda lived in the farm house for several years after Reuben's death in 1859. In January of 1861 Abraham Lincoln bid farewell to his stepmother, Sarah Bush Lincoln at the Moore home on his way to the White House. The Moore home features beautifuly restored interior, including stenciled walls, a grained manel, marbelized shelves, and lovely furniture pieces from the 1860s. The burial site of Thomas Lincoln and Sarah Bush Lincoln is located a mile west of the Moore Home in Shiloh Cemetery." ~ Wikipedia
Sadly, the house is rarely open to the public so I have never seen inside.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you will join in the fun.
My idea was to have a place to post 'old things'. Anything old
and/or deteriorating such as, but not limited to, old houses, barns, outbuildings, old cars, rusty things, antiques, interesting junk, or it can be something in pristine condition, but just old.
1. Link to a post featuring photos of something old.
