Lincoln's Real Estate

Lincoln not only spent a considerable amount of time in Bloomington pursuing legal and political matters, He also owned property here. Lincoln owned two lots on the Northwest corner of McLean and Jefferson streets and they remained vacant while under his name. Not long after he sold them, an upper middle class house was built on the site. That house is gone and today, Lincoln's two Bloomington lots serve as parking for State Farm insurance.
