Tourism officials bank on Lincoln
Local leaders discuss how to promote connections to historical figures
DIXON – City leaders, historians and tourism officials are identifying area sites with a connection to Abraham Lincoln and Chief Black Hawk to bring in visitors.
The group, which included tourism leaders from all over Lee and Ogle counties, met Thursday at the Dixon Historic Center for Round 2 of talks to promote the area’s connection to Lincoln and complement the city’s appeal as the hometown of Ronald Reagan.
Officials first met in November, shortly before the release of Steven Spielberg’s “Lincoln,” with the idea of capitalizing on the film’s popularity with its own Lincoln ties.
