Lincoln White Oak and Klein Tree Museum - Oldham County Kentucky

A Lincoln White Oak tree located at Camden Station elementary school in Crestwood, Kentucky is pictured side-by-side at planting in 1990 and twenty years later. It is very easy to identify oaks in the winter since they hang on to their brown leaves for most of the season.

Regarding the connection to Abe Lincoln, one plaque states:
"Grown from acorns gathered from tree under which Abraham Lincoln made a political address for Whig candidate William Henry Harrison in 1840 near Albion, IL."

At planting (from 1990 newspaper article) and current view (Feb. 2010):

The Theodore Klein tree museum marker at South Oldham County HS is very nearby, in fact just across the parking lot.

The school's arborical museum features a large variety of very healthy and impressive looking trees.
