Seeing New Salem

Stories about Lincoln's time in New Salem are intended to help visitors better imagine what the village was like in the 1830s and how Lincoln's brief years in New Salem molded and helped propel him to the presidency. To see the village with one's mind, as well as with one's eyes.

This is a personal visual journal of the village and park in all seasons and grows out of a desire to share it with others. The hope is to help everyone see the park in a new light.
