Abraham Lincoln To Visit Roxborough!

Abraham Lincoln To Visit Roxborough!

The Roxborough Area Historical Society will be hosting an exceptional guest during their annual meeting – Abraham Lincoln! More specifically, Abraham Lincoln presenter and look-alike, John Voehl.

John Voehl is a lifetime member of the Association of Lincoln Presenters and has appeared before thousands of people as Lincoln. He accidentally fell into the role in 1996, despite his resemblance to Lincoln. Voehl has always been fascinated with the 16th US President but it wasn’t until a friend needed a favor when he began reenacting the historical figure. Voehl’s reenactments are historically accurate and are presented in the first person.

“Your resemblance to Mr. Lincoln is amazing.” – Mr. & Mrs. Miller, USS Kanawha Reunion, Vancouver WA 2000
