  • Memorial Building featured on ornament

    The Lincoln Museum’s annual collectible Christmas ornament continues the Lincoln Bicentennial theme.

    The white ornament, seventh in a series of eight, features the Memorial Building that houses the traditional birth cabin at the Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historic Park. The photo was taken by a park employee during a February snow.

    An ill-timed ice storm canceled the Lincoln Bicentennial celebration at the park Feb. 12, but staff commemorated the 200th birthday of the 16th president despite the weather. The ceremony was moved to LaRue County High School.

    The lights at Creekfront Park are on hold until city workers can place the conduit. The project probably won’t be completed this month.
