Experience Lincoln: Presidential Library and Museum comes to life

Chris Wills, Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum communications director, stands in front of a replica cabin based on the Lincoln boyhood home in Indiana in 1818. The replica cabin was made from genuine materials from a mid-1800s tobacco barn found in storage in Cynthiana, Kentucky. A second one was located in storage in Abington, Virginia. They were shipped to Springfield, Illinois, and reassembled as one cabin in the museum.
