Lincoln-Herndon Law Offices
The Lincoln-Herndon Law Offices once housed the only Federal Court in Illinois, and is the only surviving structure in which Abe Lincoln practiced law. To monitor the hearings taking place in the courtroom below his office, Lincoln would stretch his six-foot-four-inch frame across the floor to peer through a crack in the floorboards.
