Lincoln-Sargent Farm Foundation

In 1981, the Sargent Farm Foundation was founded to raise funds for the relocation and restoration of the Stephen Sargent Farm at Lincoln Log Cabin State Historic Site. Since then the Foundation has evolved into a philanthropic organization, known today as the Lincoln-Sargent Farm Foundation, committed to the restoration and preservation of the entire site, as well as to the support of educational programming that effectively interprets the historic properties at Lincoln Log Cabin State Historic Site.The Foundation supports one of the most unique educational programs among historic sites. The Live-In Program allows fifth grade classes to experience rural life during the mid-1800s. Students participate in living history activities, which include mucking barns, splitting rails, candle dipping, and making “Johnny cake.” The Foundation also sponsors the Summer Youth Program where children spend nine weeks volunteering at the site and participating in the site’s living history programming. Special events, exhibitions, visiting scholars, and preservation efforts, such as restoration of the Moore Home, are all critical needs being met by the Foundation.
