Interest in the Lincolns’ home increased after Mr. Lincoln became President. Harper’s Weekly newspaper published this image of the Lincoln home in 1864. A small addition off the back of the house was added by the Tilton family, the renters who had written to Mr. Lincoln for permission to add on to the kitchen.
