The centerpiece of the Lincoln Home National Historic Site is the former home of our 16th president, where he lived with his young family for seventeen years. After moving to the White House in 1861, Abraham and Mary kept this as a rental with plans of returning after serving in Washington. Following his assassination in 1865, she refused to come back, and the house was later donated to the State of Illinois. In the 1970s, the state transferred ownership to the National Park Service.https://www.nps.gov/liho/Visit
