[August 22, 2012]  The 1800s Craft Fair will once again be part of the final day of the Lincoln Art & Balloon Festival. The craft fair will be from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday at the Postville Courthouse State Historic Site, 914 Fifth St.

The Postville Courthouse site was the original seat of county government in Logan County, with the current structure being a reproduction of the original courthouse where Abraham Lincoln practiced law.

Join the volunteers of this great historic site as they provide you a day to step back in time and enjoy crafts and music of an era long ago.

Crafts that will be demonstrated include rug hooking, candle dipping, the art of phrenology, silk ribbon embroidery, toy making, coopering, chair making and more.

Sarah Watson with the Looking for Lincoln Heritage Coalition will be the featured speaker.

Music and entertainment will be provided throughout the day by Chris Vallillo, Mark Mathewson, Steven Staley and more. Also look for Abe and Mary Todd Lincoln portrayers to greet visitors throughout the day.
