Photo Gallery: Lincoln Pioneer Village comes to life

Photos and story by Don Steen

The Lincoln Pioneer Village and Museum kicked off its summer season in style Saturday, beginning with a bright sunny morning and plenty of shade from the old trees on the grounds. Visitors could also cool off on the front porch of one of the cabins when needed, but most were too busy trying to keep tabs on all the sights to see and people to meet. 

The full story can be seen in this week’s edition of the Spencer County Leader!
