Send a link to a friend
March 01, 2012]  The Elkhart Historical Society will present the second of a new season of lectures at the Wild Hare Cafe in Elkhart on Friday, March 16. "Abraham Lincoln in Logan County, and the Irish Connection" will be presented by Paul Beaver, professor emeritus of Lincoln College. Beaver will talk on little-known facts about Abraham Lincoln in Logan County during the years 1834-1860.

Lincoln was a surveyor, lawyer and politician in and around Logan County and left much documented information, some of which has previously been reported incorrectly in many publications over the years. Beaver will discuss the impact of the waves of Irish immigrants into Logan County, which had a direct influence on the political success of our 16th president of the United States.

Come join an entertaining Irish night with music and corned beef and cabbage (an additional entrée is available).

Reservation forms are available at and the new website.
