Thats because a memorial dedicated to Honest Abe, his father Thomas, and stepmother Sarah Bush Johnston is set to be erected in the parking lot of office furniture supplier Kerr Office Group on Thursday (Feb. 12) Abe Lincolns 200th birthday.
The memorial will be constructed out of the actual stones that were the foundation of the Lincoln home, which used to lay right on the premises of the office building.
Owner Brian Kerr is excited to be giving back to the community, though hes a little worried that the monument will attract unwanted visitors.
He says, I hope I dont see any of their ghosts. Lets hope that if they havent been here yet, they wont come at all.
However, Kerr is mulling the idea of spreading a spooky rumor of ghostly activity in hopes that itll attract business.
