Description

This color postcard features the maid's room in the Abraham Lincoln family home located at Eighth and Jackson Streets in Springfield, Illinois. Mr. & Mrs. Lincoln and their infant son, Robert, moved into the home in 1844 and lived there until they moved to Washington, D. C., in 1861. This is the only home Abraham Lincoln ever owned. The maid's room is furnished as it would have been when the Lincolns lived there. The postcard reverse is divided. Narrative text is printed on the left side. The number P45954 is printed along the top edge near the middle. Part of the Lincoln Financial Foundation Collection, courtesy of the Indiana State Museum
