Not to be missed is the Edward's Place Fine Art Fair in middle to late September. Held on the lawn, it is part festival, part art show, part craft fair. There are tours of the home, and plenty of chances to learn about the history...More

This year is Illinois' 200th Anniversary! So my wife and I spent Columbus Day Weekend in Springfield. Lots to see there, focused on the state, the four Presidents from Illinois, and, of course, Abraham Lincoln. Edwards Place was great! A must see.

I highly recommend seeing the Edwards Place. This is a home that Lincoln visited. There are many pieces of original furniture in the home.
