Arnold House celebrates Abraham Lincoln

Feb 24, 2012

Nearly 200 people celebrated President Lincoln’s 203rd birthday at Arnold House in Lincoln, Rhode Island, founded in 1871 and named in honor of our sixteenth President. Visitors toured the 1693 stone-ender, learned about Abraham Lincoln’s journeys to Rhode Island, and, of course, enjoyed birthday cake.

Learn more about Lincoln when former Rhode Island Supreme Court Chief Justice Frank J. Williams discusses his book Judging Lincoln and President Lincoln’s assassination on Wednesday, April 18 at the Saylesville Meeting House with a reception to follow at neighboring Arnold House.

Arnold House is open for tours on Saturdays and Sundays all year long. As always, Historic New England members tour for free.
