Berry-Lincoln Store Free Building Paper Model DownloadThis building paper model is the Berry-Lincoln Store, the Berry-Lincoln Store is in the town of New Salem and platted in 1829. The Civilian Conservation Corps rebuilt the log village during the 1930s and 1940s, largely reconstructing twenty-three historically furnished buildings. These include homes, stores, tradesmen's shops, a tavern, school, wool carding mill, and a saw-gristmill, and related log barns and other outbuildings. The Berry-Lincoln Store was probably the first building in the original village and was constructed in 1829.

It is remembered as the town's only frame, not log, structure. The building was eventually sold to William Berry and Abraham Lincoln as a store.  The enterprise failed, leaving Lincoln heavily in debt. The conscientious manner in which Lincoln worked as a store clerk and his everyday dealings with people led to Lincoln being nicknamed “Honest Abe”. [via illinoishistory]
