Event Details

Fee: Free with registration 

If you had been invited to Tad’s birthday party, what would you do? What toys were found in the Lincoln Home backyard? What activity did Robert sign up for as the result of a clumsy event at a party? We look at popular games and toys for boys (and girls!) that the Lincoln boys and their friends would have played.   

This event will be recorded and shared to Lincoln Home National Historic Site youtube page. “Tales from the Vault” is a collaborative program hosted by the Illinois State Museum, the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, and Lincoln’s Home National Historic Site that allows the public to discover some of the treasures from these institutions’ collections.
