Old House Near Grandview Built by Father of Lincoln in 1827 Has Been Used Continuously Ever Since as Dwelling

House Built by Thomas Lincoln

A gangling backwoods boy danced at the house warming when the house pictured above was completed in 1827. He was Abraham Lincoln, whose father, Thomas, helped to build the house for Peter Lahue, one of Spencer county’s earliest settlers.

The homestead, known as the "old Lynn house." Stands beside state highway 66 about two miles south of Grandview. Built of logs, it has since been covered with sidings. It is now occupied by the family of Otto Scherer.
