Did you know that a well-known biography of Abraham Lincoln has ties to the village of Old Mission? If you attend the upcoming meeting of the Old Mission Peninsula Historical Society, you’ll know even more.
The group will meet this Thursday, Sept. 2, at 6 p.m. at Peninsula Community Library, 2893 Island View Road, on the corner of Center Road.

After a short business meeting, Sarah Thomas, assisted by Amy Hathaway, will present a program entitled “About a Book.” This particular book, “Abraham Lincoln, a Biography,” was written by Sarah’s father, Benjamin P. Thomas, and published in 1952.
Sarah will highlight the book’s journey and its connection to Old Mission. She is a resident of the Leffingwell Association in Old Mission (also known as Old Mission Resort).
The program is open to the public, and visitors are welcome. Per guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control, masks are strongly encouraged.
