12. Abraham Lincoln attended the New York Ave. Presbyterian Church in DC

His pew has been preserved, and I've sat in the pew.

Amid busy downtown traffic stands a Washington church with strong ties to the Lincoln family -- a must-see for anyone interested in the Lincoln story. President and Mrs. Abraham Lincoln first visited the New York Avenue Presbyterian Church shortly after he took office on March 4, 1861, and often attended services until his death on April 15, 1865. Located three blocks from the White House, the building was new when the Lincolns walked through the doorway.
