Tama County - Toledo
Land owned by Abraham Lincoln
Lincoln owned land in Iowa granted by the U.S. Government for service in the Black Hawk War in 1832. Besides this land in Tama County, see Crawford County for land he owned there. There is no record that he ever saw either of these parcels of land. Thanks to John Sachs for notifying me of this historical marker. To find this marker, take Highway 63 north of Toledo for 4.5 miles to 260th Street - then go west 2.4 miles to H Avenue - then north 0.4 miles to the land and marker on the east side of the road. Photos taken 3/6/09.
