Follow the Lincoln story in Jacksonville through a number of exhibit on the Looking for Lincoln Story Trail as you discover the rich Lincoln history here. You can follow in Lincoln’s footsteps through historic Jacksonville via the Voices of Jacksonville. This audio tour, which can be accessed through your car radio, will take you to seven sites where you see the places and hear the stories of Lincoln and his association with Jacksonville. Home to two Civil War generals, a very vocal abolitionist community, and an active stop on the famed “Underground Railroad” as slaves from the South made their way to freedom in the North, you’ll find intriguing and extraordinary stories of the life and times of Lincoln here.
