Farmland, News Desk

Sold! Farm Owned by Honest Abe Sells at Auction


Farmland once owned by Abraham Lincoln sold for $300,000 at auction on Feb. 12 – Lincoln’s birthday. Of the 590 total acres auctioned, 30 were once owned by Lincoln. According to the Journal Gazette & Times-Courier, the Best family decided it was time to part with its farmland and link to history. In 1841, Abraham bought the land from his cash-strapped father, Thomas. It’s rumored to be the only farm Abraham ever owned, although Thomas continued to farm it. The Best family has always farmed those 30 acres, noting the entire farm has been productive. Ron Best, who spoke to the JG-TC, has a copy of the original deed of land sale to Abraham Lincoln. Best told the newspaper he and his family never thought to use the land for anything other than farming, but “it’s hard to value Lincoln land.”
