Lincoln Home National Historic Site
On my way home from St. Louis, I decided to swing by Springfield, Illinois to visit the Lincoln Home National Historic Site.
The Cook House
is a two-story wood frame Greek Revival home that has clapboard siding, cornerboards, gables, a dormer, a side porch and a hip roof.
The DuBois House
The Lyon House
- A New Year
- 2014 was a busy year. In fact, it was more than just busy—it was at times surprisingly productive. The first part of the year was filled with big decisions and, as a result, was riddled with stress.
- Ryerson Woods
- Ryerson Woods is among my favorite places to go for a walk—even in January. And considering how horrible January can be in Chicagoland, that says a lot.
- Snow Day
- It snowed last night and most of today and although the total accumulation didn’t top two inches, it made everything look wonderfully white. It also screwed up traffic across the midlands.
