On the Lincoln Trail

In and around our community are some known — and some not so known — traces of our 16th President of the United States . It is exciting to explore where clues of Abraham Lincoln can be found , as we celebrate the centennial of the dedication of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington , D . C . We begin with some special events : Chesterwood , the historic home of Lincoln sculptor Daniel Chester French , will open its doors on May 5 . Then the opening of The Lincoln Memorial Illustrated is on May 7 at the Norman Rockwell Museum . The world premiere of the new documentary film by Eduardo Montes-Bradley , Daniel Chester French : American Sculptor , is on May 26 at the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center . And mark your calendar for the Chesterwood Family Day on May 30 . Now , let ’ s go exploring !
