The Grayslake Heritage Center and Museum, 164 Hawley Street, will be one of eleven museums in the nation to host a nationally traveling exhibition created by the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum.
Abraham Lincoln: Self-Made in America features high quality reproductions related to the life of our 16th President, with proceeds aiding in the preservation and restoration of the originals. These precious artifacts range from Lincoln's surveying instruments to the kid gloves he wore on that fateful night at Ford's Theater. The show will run from March 23rd through June 16, 2013, with expanded hours and weekly, family-friendly programs scheduled. Group tours are welcome.
