“A private tour that includes entry into 3 main Lincoln sites; the Lincoln home, the old state capitol, and the Lincoln Tomb.”
Garret Moffett typically guides this half day private guided tour that moves at your pace. This is a private tour that you hire me for and includes entry into 3 main Lincoln sites; the Lincoln home, the old state capitol, and the Lincoln Tomb where I’ll guide you through the Lincoln history and tell you stories well beyond the constraints of site interpreters. You’ll hear about Lincoln’s funeral in in Springfield, his final farewell. And once I found out what intrigues you about Lincoln I can then tell you stories towards your interest so you can connect to the Lincoln history.
This tour may not be for everyone, it is intensive Lincoln, and not an average site tour.
Tour Details: We’ll typically meet at 10am inside the Lincoln home visitor center, 426 s.7th St. on your tour date. I’ll facilitate your tour through Lincoln’s home, then we walk the street talking about the Lincoln’s home life. Then we’ll drive downtown a few blocks away and I’ll tour you through the Old State Capitol where Lincoln served in the legislature. And then we’ll drive out to the cemetery and I’ll tour you through the Lincoln Tomb where the history will come full circle as we pay our respects. It takes four hours to do these three main Lincoln sites justice, but as time allows we can drive by other sites, but we’ll move at your pace. If you need to take a break for a snack or lunch we can do that without costing you time, or we can tour straight through. If your party is five or less we can use my vehicle.
NOTE: Because of the Covid virus the Lincoln home and visitor center will remain closed until spring 2021. This tour will still include the a walk through the Lincoln neighborhood. And I can substitute this closure for another historical site relative to your interests.
Private Groups Only From 1 to 12 People.
Inquiries made on arrival in town accepted, I might be available the next morning.
