President Abraham Lincoln paid a visit to Scottsburg where he appeared at the Best Western motel. Lincoln also appeared at the re-enactment of Morgan's Raid at Lexington.
(*Note of interest: The furniture at the Best Western is said to have come from the estate of the English family. The rest of the English estate furniture (which has been in storage) can now be seen at the Scott Co. Heritage Center and Museum.)
