Videographer Jessica Korgie from Homestead National Historical Site visited Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial last week and the Visitors Bureau got a behind-the-scenes look.
She spent her time interviewing life-long Lincoln city resident and National Park Service employee Tim Thompson.
Tim Thompson explains the purpose of a cabin at the Living Historical Farm.
We were there as staff members showed Jessica around the Living Historical Farm.
Bob Zimmerman talks about chores from Lincoln’s days.
The appeal of this interactive family-friendly destination is obvious to Tim.
“People really do love it out here,” he noted.
Jessica and Bob explore the fields at the Living Historical Farm.
