Today many people refer to gardening as a hobby, but in the mid-19th Century many families depended on a kitchen garden to enrich their diets with seasonal foods such as fruits, vegetables and herbs. This recreated 19th Century kitchen garden features a variety of plants that were available when Abraham Lincoln lived in this neighborhood. As you look upon the garden see how many plant varieties you can recognize.

"Every blade of grass is a study; and to produce two, where there was but one, is both a profit and a pleasure."
Abraham Lincoln
September 1859
