Group raising funds for replica of Abraham Lincoln cottage



SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — A group dedicated to preserving Abraham Lincoln's legacy is hoping to show people what his Springfield home was like before it was the two-story, 12-room dwelling that visitors tour today. The Abraham Lincoln Association is raising money to buy land near the historic Lincoln Home site downtown Springfield and build a replica of the six-room cottage that Lincoln bought in 1844. The home wasn’t renovated to add a second story — giving the Lincoln Home its current appearance — until 1856, after Lincoln had achieved economic and political success. The group says it needs to raise $400,000 for the project.
