It was nice to see the outside, but we were told at another Lincoln landmark that the state of Illinois has had no budget and no available money, so this is closed until further notice. It was worth the walk over to take the pictures...More

We saw this after leaving the Lincoln Museum and were a bit disappointed to find it closed, but it was still interesting to see where Lincoln had worked. The area around it was very nice and we enjoyed seeing all the shops.

One can't go inside due to renovations, but just being at the corner where the law office was is worthwhile. Note the nice Abe Lincoln statue with Mary in front.

Across the street from the Old Capitol building, this facility was not open, presumably a victim of the state's financial issues.

This place was closed when we went but we were able to see inside the windows and take pictures out front. The history in this little town is breath taking.

I think they open at 8 am. You can get on the National Park Service webpage and probably find out more info.
