When Abraham Lincoln stayed at the Lincoln-Tallman House in 1859, it wove Rock County into the history of one of America’s greatest presidents. Learn about the construction of the mansion, the members and personalities of the Tallman family, and the events that caused Honest Abe to spend two nights in the house. If it’s your first time to the Lincoln-Tallman House, the Traditional Tour offers an excellent overview. The tour covers the home’s first and second floors.
