The purpose of the Lincoln Learning Center is to provide a venue for the children and adults of the area to experience historical related activities and events and to compliment the Lincoln Manahan Home Museum.
The Lincoln Learning Center Project began when the SRFHS purchased the C&E Glass Building, located next door to the Lincoln-Manahan Home in June, 2013. In November of 2016, work began on the new Lincoln Learning Center to be built on the east side of the Lincoln- Manahan Home.
Every fall all of the 4th grade classes in Sterling & Rock Falls tour the Lincoln-Manahan Home to learn about how life was in the 1850s and about the day that Abraham Lincoln spent the night there. The LLC will provide a facility where they can learn more about their home town(s) while they tour the LMH. It will also be the home of the Junior Historian program. Additionally, we expect to be able to hold many other historical related events for the education and enjoyment of area citizens of all ages.
