Lincoln's Cottage

I think I would like to see this:



Well, it looks more like this after 15,000,000.00>

http://www.lincolncottage.org/visit/index.htm

I think on the news they said there were 34 rooms which would seem more like a mansion to me. Someting new to do in D.C. for anyone visiting.

Isn't a cottage supposed to be small, humble and cozy?

Loncoln had a big hat=big cottage. It is kind of cool that it was at the old soldiers home. I would imagine that was probably being used as a hospital at the time but I have not looked that up.

If you look at both pictures back and forth, it's the same house with some paint...

What did you want to see? the same house painted in scratchy sepia, looking at it through cheese cloth?

He had a big hat and a big cottage.... me thinks he's overcompensating for something.

I think it looks pretty cool, I was there a couple years ago when my great uncle was living at the Soldiers home.

Oddly enough, these are the names of two of the bands I was in in college.
