While walking into the Will County Historical Museum and Research Center in Lockport, Abraham Lincoln, portrayed by Kevin J. Wood, was asked to sit on the new donation, a couch. According to Sandy Vasko, director of the museum, President Lincoln sat on this sofa. 

"If I didn't sit in it back then, I'm sitting in it now," said Wood, portraying Lincoln.
