The Abraham Lincoln National Heritage Area The Abraham Lincoln National Heritage Area (ALNHA) is a 43-county area of Central Illinois designated by Congress in 2008. The ALNHA works in partnership with the National Park Service and tells the stories of Lincoln's life and times in Illinois. It is the only National Heritage Area named for an American President. The Abraham Lincoln National Heritage Area is fo- cused on the 30 years Lincoln lived in central Illinois, raising his family and pursuing his passion for the law and politics. During this time, we now know he was unwittingly preparing himself to become the President who would hold the Nation together during a time of unprecedented challeng- es, that of a Civil War, requiring enormous courage to save the Union and bind its wounds, while trying to cleanse the scourge of slavery from our national culture. He was ultimately successful in his objective but gave his last, full measure of devotion at Ford's Theater in 1865. We now believe that his journey is our enduring legacy.

The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum Located in Springfield, Illinois, the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum is just a short, gorgeous drive from Lake Shelbyville. The downtown area is a mere 56 scenic miles away and the Library houses one of the largest collections of Lincoln material in the world and serves not only students and scholars researching Lincoln and Illinois history, but also genealogists from around the world. The museum is a world class institu- tion in which visitors can journey through Lincoln’s life in Illinois from his days in New Salem to his time as a candidate for president, and on through his presidency in Washington DC, wrestling with the Civil War and slavery, and finally his untimely death at the hands of an assassin’s bullet.
