It was cool seeing this place but it wasn't a place that I would go out my way to see again. But they have a really nice gift shop so that would be a reason to go.

David was our tour guide and told us things we couldn't have guessed about the early courts and Lincoln's involvement. Original flooring upstairs in the law offices. They told us in 2015 they will furnish the front of the building to resemble the small grocers that inhabited the space during Lincoln's occupation of the building. FABO location too

I am a Lincolnophile, and I loved imagining Lincoln sitting back in his chair with his feet on the desk, debating a subject of deep concern with his partner Herndon.

Very interesting visit to Lincoln's different offices with different law partners. Good guide knowledge including how the partner usually did the research and Mr. Lincoln would argue the case in everyday terms and on key points.

No one seem interested in the fact we entered the building so we quickly looked around and walked through. The kids liked looking at the "post office". We ended up spending the most time in the gift shop at the back end. Really fun to see the pictures that showed it as Tinsley's.
