Visit the Holiday Tree Show at Lincoln-Tallman House in Janesville, Wisconsin

I am ashamed to admit that I didn't know until today that a really cool historical house, tied to Abraham Lincoln, exists in Janesville, Wisconsin. Now that I know about it, I REALLY want to go see it, especially now during the holiday season!

Every year starting Thanksgiving weekend through the end of December, the Rock County Historical Society hosts a Holiday Tree Show at the historical Lincoln-Tallman House located at 440 N Jackson St. in Janesville. Not only does the Lincoln-Tallman House have a bunch of fascinating facts and stories to share, but it gets dressed to the 9's during the holiday season thanks to many Janesville-area businesses, organizations, and families.

The Rock County Historical Society describes their Holiday Tree Show like this;

With more than 130 trees and decorations throughout the historic mansion, each is uniquely bejeweled by a local business, nonprofit or family. From nostalgic to patriotic, opulent and handmade, each tree has been decorated with loving imagination at this year’s show – larger and more joyous than ever before! Open-house-style tours are ideal for adults and children alike.

Doesn't that sound like something you HAVE to see?!?

Treat your family to a leisurely stroll through this awesome home and over a thousand Christmas lights Thursdays and Fridays from 12 p.m. to  7 p.m., or Saturdays and Sundays from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. through December 30, 2021. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children 5 and above, and can be purchased in advance, here.
