    Blue, white, and gold wallpaper with floral and fleur-de-lies pattern. Fair condition, very dirty. One of six sections (LIHO 5420-5425) removed from the south wall of the northwest bedroom of the Lincoln Home during the 1987 restoration. Part five of six sections, comprising LIHO 5420-5425. L 60 7/8" x W 33 5/8". This section of wallpaper proved to be very important to restoration efforts to the Abraham Lincoln Home in Springfield, IL. There is a patch on it which, over the years, covered and protected the original colors and design. This allowed the Park Service to reproduce, in detail, the original wallpaper. The protected spot appears prominently in the photo. American Communities in History; Antebellum Society and the Civil War; How we learn about communities. 16 History. less
