Visit the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum from March 23, 2023-January 21, 2024 to experience the new exhibit Here I Have Lived: Home in Illinois

Home is more than a structure. It’s a feeling of belonging and finding a sense of self and community. Whether by immigration, migration, or residency, Illinoisans from Cahokia to Lincoln into the present-day have experienced and imagined home in different ways. The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum invites visitors to explore stories of home in a new exhibit, Here I Have Lived: Home in Illinois, opening March 23, 2023. Representing diverse experiences across the prairie state, this exhibit will inspire visitors to connect through artifacts, videos, and interactive features with how people have imagined, created, and found home in Illinois.
