Unique memorabilia featured at Lincoln exhibit

METAMORA - Memorabilia featuring Abraham Lincoln, from the ordinary to the unusual, is being housed housed in a courthouse where the former president handled dozens of cases.

The exhibit, named "In Lincoln's Image," is located at the Metamora Courthouse.  The show runs until May, and features several items that have been loaned from local Woodford County collectors.

The exhibit features ordinary items such as Lincoln-themed paperweights, but also includes several unusual trinkets, such as a miniature Mount Rushmore-shaped thermometer and a set of magnetic salt and pepper shakers resembling Lincoln and Confederate General Robert E. Lee.
