With Tourism Week in Illinois about to wrap up, and history is a recurring theme in Clinton and DeWitt County.

 

Clinton Chamber of Commerce Tourism Director, Marian Brisard explains their Barn Quilts are a way to highlight that history and the agriculture community of DeWitt County.

 

 

Growing up and practicing law in central Illinois, many communities promote their ties to the great President Abra in some way or another. Joey Woolridge helped organize and put together DeWitt County's Looking For Lincoln Wayside Exhibits which are scattered across the community.

 

 

Woolridge indicates, CH Moore was a very good friend of Abraham Lincoln all the way up to his death, and countless examples of that friendship are at the CH Moore Homestead.
