The Lincoln Memorial Shrine is a museum and educational center devoted to President Abraham Lincoln and the American Civil War. It was created and endowed in the 1930s by Robert Watchorn to honor President Lincoln and also as a memorial to his son Emory, who succumbed at a young age to health problems that arose from his service in the First World War.

The Shrine houses a comprehensive collection of books, manuscripts, and art work relating to President Lincoln and the Civil War. Their extensive archive includes rare pamphlets, newspapers, maps, photographs, coins, stamps, and other artifacts from the era. The Shrine regularly hosts fascinating exhibits which highlight various aspects of Lincoln’s life and the war. If you live in the Redlands area or will be visiting, make a point of seeing this truly unique and inspiring tribute to the President who preserved the Union and ended the curse of slavery.
