The city of Atlanta will place its Looking for Lincoln exhibit at
104 SW Arch St., which is also part of Old Route 66. The location is
near the Palms Grill, a historic building that has recently been
renovated and is opening as a museum.
The Atlanta exhibit is one
of four new Looking for Lincoln interpretive panels to be installed
and dedicated in Logan County by the end of the year. One was
dedicated in Elkhart in November. The others will be unveiled at
separate events in Mount Pulaski and Middletown.
The new exhibits will accompany the other Looking for Lincoln
wayside exhibits in the county -- one at the christening site for
the city of Lincoln and one at the Mount Pulaski Township Historical
The Atlanta wayside exhibit was made possible through special
funding provided by the Looking for Lincoln Heritage Coalition,
which will preside over the recently designated Abraham Lincoln
National Heritage Area in Illinois, a federal designation that will
eventually deliver up to $15 million into the central Illinois areas
in which Lincoln lived, worked and traveled. The Looking for Lincoln
executive director, Hal Smith, is expected at the event Monday.
