“Lincoln the Lawyer”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

This building houses the rooms that were lawyer Lincoln's offices. Its history is interesting, and it is a short tour, but interesting nonetheless.

“Lincoln's Law Office”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

An average tour but one you could easily skip if you are pressed for time. Not really much to see, guide was nice and informative. You could save time by walking by and taking a photo. Note that the law office is a bit difficult to find even though it is right on a corner.

“very informative”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

We lucked out in finding this place. We took the tour and learned so much from our guide, she was wonderful. A lot of the original features still exist and just to walk the same floors as Abraham Lincoln was amazing.

“Don't blink or you will miss it”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

We searched and passed it up three times before we realized that it was nothing but a big empty store front room with no furniture or anything in it. Dissapointing.

“A must see!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

I took my daughter on a tour of Springfield to see the Lincoln sites. We stopped at the law office where he worked and got to go on a wonderful tour. There is a desk there that was used by 2 Presidents. It is a must see!
