Tucked away off the beaten path in Brownsburg, Indiana, is a hidden treasure called Wilbur's Lincolnwood Toy Store. I'm a big kid at heart (or "childish," as my wife occasionally calls me), and I love keeping my retail money within Hendricks County, so when the opportunity arose to check out a locally-owned toy store I had never heard of, I jumped at it.
Before I went to the store, I learned that the owner of Lincolnwood Toy Store is Wilbur Tague -- thus, the "Wilbur's" in the store title. But I wondered where =the "Lincolnwood" part came from? When my 6-year-old daughter and I arrived at the store, however, that mystery was immediately solved. Tague is a dead ringer for Abraham Lincoln. In fact, as I chatted with him, I learned that he portrays the 16th president on a regular basis at a wide range of events. I learned that he's a professional photographer and the man behind the lens of Wilbur Tague Photography.
