This GMP/EIS will guide the management of the Lincoln Home National Historic Site for the next 20 years. The draft GMP/EIS considers four draft conceptual alternatives—a no-action and three action alternatives, including the NPS preferred alternative. The draft GMP/EIS assesses impacts to cultural resources, visitor opportunities and use, socioeconomics, and NPS operations.
The NPS preferred alternative focuses on rehabilitating the historic landscape to offer visitors a strong sense of the neighborhood as Lincoln knew it. This goal would be accomplished by extensive rehabilitation at the core of the site, but less extensive away from the core. The Lincoln lot would be restored if there is sufficient documentation.Start Further Info
