Lincoln's house

I was driving back to St Louis and stopped for a phone call in Springfield  I have driven through Illinois probably a half dozen times in the last few years, but  never have stopped to see the Lincoln museum and house. 
It is now a National Monument and meticulously restored to its original paint colors-Quaker brown with green shutters, and it's interior as well. History sometimes seems like myth, but in places like this the reality and immediacy of the past is undeniable. 
I need to take Leila and the kids.
