Join Mary Todd Lincoln as she hosts this very special canal boat tour!

Climb aboard a replica 19th Century canal boat and step back in time to 1848 to celebrate the day that Abraham Lincoln & his family were in LaSalle-Peru!

Mary Todd Lincoln will guide you on a tour of the western end of the I&M Canal, where she and Mr. Lincoln and their family boarded the canal in 1848 for the Lincoln family's trip from Washington, DC, home to Springfield.

Join us to learn about Lincoln's connection to the I&M Canal from his early days in Illinois and the creation of the Canal to his desire to expand it during his Presidency.
