LERNA (JG-TC) -- The start of a series of children's story presentations along with tours and an open house are set for Saturday at Lincoln Log Cabin State Historic Site.

The story series is geared towards children ages 3-10 and will feature historically themed children's books and other activities.

Saturday's presentation is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. and will feature the story "Abe Lincoln's Hat" by Martha Brenner. It tells of how Lincoln kept letters and other important papers in his hat while he was an attorney before becoming president.

There is no charge to attend the presentation but children must be accompanied by adults, according to information from the site.

Tours of the historic site and an open house in the site's visitors center are set to take place from 1-4 p.m.

Lincoln Log Cabin State Historic Site is located in southern Coles County and features the last home of Thomas and Sarah Bush Lincoln, who were Abraham Lincoln's father and stepmother.
