  • Relics saved from Lincoln Heritage House

    Recently gutted by a fire that authorities believe to be arson, the Lincoln Heritage House in Elizabethtown's Freeman Lake Park may be rebuilt with as much salvaged material from the original structure as possible.

    “I want to try to get a cabin back up there if at all possible,” City Councilman Tim Walker said.

    Salvagers have pulled from the rubble a few iron pots that had been around the fireplace, Walker said. Some of the cabin’s contents dated back to the early 1800s.
