Melodies and Messages: 1850s-style Carol Sing
Travel back to the 1850s this Christmas season—join Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln for special music, worship, and a carol sing. The Rev. Dr. Clifford J. Hayes will portray the Rev. Dr. James Smith, who was pastor of First Presbyterian Church from 1849 - 1856. Dr. Smith officiated at the funeral for Eddie Lincoln.

The Lincolns, portrayed by Fritz Klein and Pam Brown, will greet visitors — and everyone is invited to attend in mid-19th century attire along with our performers. Following the service, join us for Mary Lincoln's White Cake in the Commons.

Guest Musicians will be performing period music.
This event is free and the entire offering collected will be given to the Salvation Army to benefit the poor of Sangamon County.
