Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum Foundation Putting Items Up for Auction

The foundation that supports the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum is selling a black dress once owned by movie star Marilyn Monroe to repay a loan used to buy artifacts relating to the 16th president.

The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library Foundation is putting nine items up for auction in Las Vegas June 23, including photos of the 1950s movie icon. Julien’s Auctions says the wool dress could sell for more than $60,000. The foundation owes about $10 million on a 2007 loan.
