There isn't a lot to see here, but it is an important building in Lincoln's life story. If you are a Lincoln buff, you need to stop here.

Had a great tour guide that was knowledgeable and friendly. A lot of history there. Would definitely take the time to see it.

While it's fascinating to stand in the same spot Abe did, there's not a lot here that's still original.

I was without a guide, so I wandered through and it was quite unremarkable.

Building where Lincoln practiced law. Statue of his family outside on the grounds. While it was closed when we arrived, we were still able to learn a few things and get some great shots.

If you are visiting the Lincoln sites in Springfield, I would put this on the list. It's a short walk to several other sites, and it only takes a few minutes to get a glimpse of a big part of Lincoln's life. Our guide was very good, and he even took the time to give us information about other sites.
