Lincoln Park in Zionsville Indiana

Lincoln Park is a small, 1-acre park located at 41 South 2nd Street, in the heart of Zionsville. It is a quiet place for reflection, rest, and relaxation that stretches nearly a block long. The park got its name from a 1861 visit from then President-Elect Abraham Lincoln.

A memorial marker to Lincoln’s address was erected by the Zionsville Lions Club in 1956. The marker reads: “Abraham Lincoln enroute to Washington as President Elect on February 11, 1861 addressed the Citizens of Zionsville at the Railroad Depot which stood on this site.”
