Welcome to The Lincoln Special


You might be here today because you recently received a letter from me. If so, I’d like to personally thank you for taking the time to look at our website and learn more!

You live in an area with an unparalleled connection to our shared history. The Lincoln Funeral Train passed through right where you are. That connection is the ONLY place in the United States that shares such an important link to our 16th President, Abraham Lincoln.
