The interior of the Nancy Hanks Lincoln Hall is reminiscent of early Indiana days. The yellow (tulip) poplar beams and columns, walnut wainscoting, and pegged oak floor--as well as the huge sandstone fireplace--speak to us of pioneer strength and perserverance. The furnishings and floor covering create a feeling for the simplicity of the modest pioneer home established by Abraham Lincoln's mother.

The table, benches, and chairs are made of selected cherry wood. The large hand-braided rug, especially designed for the Nancy Hanks Lincoln Hall, and the window bench coverings are based on patterns Nancy Lincoln might have known. The hand-woven bench seat covers are of an old bedspread design. the fabric used here is wool, which was one of the most common clothing materials of the frontier.

The mural painting over the fireplace depicts the location where the Lincolns crossed the ohio River in 1816 as they headed for their new Indiana home.
