The Enloe Family home in Rutherford County NC

 
     
  This original oil painting by John Ackroyd, is currently on display at the museum.
 
"The Abraham Enloe Cabin" was the former home of Nancy Hanks, mother of Abraham Lincoln.  Nancy birthed her black-haired baby boy, named Abraham, about mid-February 1805.  The content of this painting is based upon the collaborative work of Tom Melton and John Ackroyd, Senior Rutherford County resident artist.  Tom contributed his life's collected information about the traditional birthplace of America's 16th President to the museum and this painting is based on the cabin's foundation and depicts both Tom and John's mutualy agreed upon concept-reconstruction.  The Abraham Enloe cabin and farm were located on the hill above Puzzle Creek, some four miles northwest of the Bostic Lincoln Center.  The cabin was described as located between Cherry Mountain and the Concord Baptist Church.
