Kiwanis Club learns about Bostic Lincoln Center

Published 5:24 pm Thursday, December 15, 2011

Former Tryon resident Lydia Clontz visited the Tryon Kiwanis Club to tell members about The Bostic Lincoln Center, a museum that ”preserves generational lore.” A collection of books by historians and biographers, such as James Caswell Coggins’ “Abraham Lincoln, A North Carolinian with Proof,” published in 1926, have documented that Abraham Lincoln was born in North Carolina, in a cabin on Puzzle Creek near Bostic. The center’s museum was opened in 2008 and has been visited by more than 2,400 people. Two documentaries are available at the center, as well as tours to Lincoln Hill. Jim Jackson, a visitor to the club meeting, is shown above with Clontz after her presentation. For more information, visit (photo submitted by Lynn Montgomery)
