Mission Statement Lincoln Depot Museum:
The Lincoln Depot Museum, located by Peekskill Bay on the Hudson River, is a 3,000 square foot freight and passenger rail depot where President-elect Abraham Lincoln addressed the citizens of Westchester County, New York on February 19, 1861 during his inaugural journey from Springfield, IL to Washington, D.C.
The primary focus of the Museum’s collection and exhibits is Lincoln and New York: The Indispensable Relationship, which examines essential connections between Abraham Lincoln and New York and its military regiments, its media outlets, and its railroad and industrial development. Additionally, the Museum collection highlights the contributions of three Peekskillians who made significant contributions in support of Lincoln’s candidacy and his re-election: Chauncey Depew, Peter Cooper and HenryWard Beecher.
