1. The Village Heritage. "In 1861, when President-elect Abraham Lincoln’s train passed through Zionsville carrying him from his home in Illinois to his inauguration, it stopped briefly at Zionsville. Mr. Lincoln stepped onto the bunting-draped rear platform of the train and spoke briefly to the assembled crowd. The site was later commemorated in his honor as Lincoln Park."
