Antique Farm Show Canceled

Posted:

SPRINGFIELD - Wet weather has forced the cancellation of the Antique Farm Show this weekend at Lincoln's New Salem State Historic Site.

Organizers deemed plowing and other activities planned for the event as impossible due to muddy fields.

The show will not be re-scheduled this year but will return in 2014.

Lincoln's New Salem will be open this weekend despite the Farm Show's cancellation.

The site is administered by the Illinois Historic Preservation Society. It is a reconstruction of the 1830s village where Abraham Lincoln spent six years of his life as a young man.
