Did you know that Abraham Lincoln was once a guest in Rock County's most famous residence, the Linoln-Tallman House? Constructed between 1855 and 1857, this six-floor mansion is an excellent example of Italianate-style architecture. From the basement to the cupola, each floor offers visitors a unique glimpse of daily life in 19th century Rock County. Over seventy percent of the furniture is original, making it one of the most complete historic houses in the Midwest. From 1857 to 1915, the house was occupied by the William Morrison Tallman family. In October of 1859, Abraham Lincoln stayed at the house after a series of speeches in Beloit, forever cementing the reputation of the Lincoln-Tallman House as "where Lincoln slept". On the guided tour of the house you'll learn about Lincoln's famous visit, discover how the house was built, why the Tallman family moved to Janesville from New York, their connection to abolitionism and the Underground Railroad. When you visit the Helen Jeffris Wood Museum Center, you'll find several wonderful exhibits, a gift shop and bookstore. Current exhibits include: *Pauline Pottery showcases *Pickard china gallery *Breadbasket: Seed to Spoon exhibit *Irish in Janesville exhibit *Parker Pen artifacts less
