For the 45th year, the Shrine celebrates the life and times of Abraham Lincoln and the American Civil War with a day of music, reenactor presentations, and activities for the whole family. Renowned Lincoln presenter Robert Broski will be on hand to greet visitors, along with the 7th Michigan Cavalry on horseback and the 1st Pennsylvania Light Artillery, whose cannon demonstrations are a highlight every year.
Given the success of the 2016 festivities, the Open House will once again be coupled with the annual Lincoln Pilgrimage, a program hosted by the Grayback District of California Inland Empire Council, Boy Scouts of America since 1940.
