Destination of the Day: The Lincoln Museum, Fort Wayne, IN

Destination 2 in the series "R.I.P."


Opened: 1931. Closed: 30 June 2008.  Declining attendance was the official reason for closing the museum, although some suggest that after Lincoln Financial was purchased by another company that contribution priorities changed.  Fortunately the collection was transferred to the Indiana State Museum, Indianapolis, and Allen County Public Library, Fort Wayne.
