Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site Review

This is the farm to which the famed poet and Lincoln biographer Carl Sandburg moved with his wife, Lillian, in 1945. Guided tours of their house, Connemara, where Sandburg's papers still lie scattered on his desk and 12,000 of his books are on bookshelves, are given by the National Park Service. Kids enjoy a walk around the grounds of the farm, which still maintains descendants of the Sandburg family goats.
