A little more history:

Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site  and  Educational Resources

"If I live to a majestic old age becoming the owner of a farm, I shall sit under apple trees in the summer and on a pad of paper with a large yellow lead pencil, I shall write of these things, lover of mine". -Carl Sandburg, “Personally,” Honey and Salt, 1963

Carl Sandburg, famed biographer of Abraham Lincoln, singer and collector of American folksongs, author of American fairytales…America’s poet of the people sought to KNOW America. He was involved, as a newspaper reporter, a poet, a movie critic, a platform speaker, and a syndicated columnist, in most major events of early 20thcentury American history. Carl Sandburg spoke for those who did not have the means to speak for themselves through his poetry in books such as: Chicago, Corn Huskers, Smoke and Steel, Good Morning America, the People, Yes and other works. He spoke of social injustice, the affects of progress on the working class, racial strife, labor unrest, the widening gap between rich and poor, and the toll of war. Two of Carl Sandburg’s most notable achievements as an author and poet came in the form of the Pulitzer Prize. He was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in History in 1940 for his four-volume biography of Abraham Lincoln The War Years and a Pulitzer Prize in Poetry in 1951 for his book Complete Poems. The Sandburg family moved to Connemara, a 240-acre farm in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, from their home on the dunes of Lake Michigan in1945. Carl Sandburg continued to work and published ten volumes of poetry in this serene and peaceful place. Carl Sandburg died here on July 22, 1967 and left a legacy of works about the American struggle behind. On October 17, 1968 Carl Sandburg Home National Historic site was authorized by Congress as a memorial to the life and works of Carl Sandburg. It was opened to the public on May 11, 1974 as a unit of the National Park Service and as a testament of Carl Sandburg’s significance to the American people. Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site is open for guided tours everyday except Christmas day.
