This photo, from the collection of Ronald Dale Nunn, is of the blab school where Abraham Lincoln attended as a child. It was located outside Athertonville. It was called a “blab school” because the students recited their lessons aloud. State historical marker 1482, erected in 1973, marks the location. It reads: Abraham Lincoln’s first school. Lincoln’s formal education began in a primitive log cabin near this site. While the Lincoln family was living on Knob Creek, he and his sister Sarah attended ABC schools for a short period of time.
