The purpose of The Bostic Lincoln Center is to obtain, preserve and maintain a property suitable for a museum, visitors’ center and a Community Learning Center.

The Bostic Lincoln Center, is a 501c-3 non-profit museum operating through dedicated volunteerism and sponsorship.  Our mission is to collect, document, preserve and research the generational lore of our location in Western North Carolina.  One of these most important stories, handed down for over two centuries, relates to the birth of Abraham Lincoln in a cabin above Puzzle Creek.  This creek is located near the present day town of Bostic, in Rutherford County, North Carolina.

We would like to encourage you to stop by the museum and review the stories we have collected to date . And, if you have a story to tell, please let us record it in your own words.  Call and set up an appointment for us to video you, your family and your generational stories of this area.

We wish to express our appreciation to the town of Bostic for their generous support of the museum.

As we continue our grassroots fundraising efforts, please consider including the Lincoln Project in your budget.  Your financial support is critical to the success of the Lincoln Project.  Instructions on contributing may be found here.

If you would like to become more involved, or join our growing team of volunteersm please e-mail us at info@BosticLincolnCenter.com or contact any Board Member.  We look forward to hearing from you or seeing you at one of our museum events. 

With sincere appreciation,


Board of Directors
