LEROY, Ill. (AP) — Abraham Lincoln history buffs will get a chance to learn more about the 16th president this week at a central Illinois museum.

The Empire Township Museum in LeRoy is hosting an exhibit and discussion about Lincoln. The (Bloomington) Pantagraph reports (http://bit.ly/12g9wgH ) that two historians will be at the museum on Saturday afternoon.

Museum officials say it is an informal chat.

The Lincoln-related exhibit includes replicas of clothing and paintings by local artists.
