The Pike House
Today, Law offices and businesses occupy the site of the Pike House. The Pike House was a popular hostelry during Lincoln's day. Delegates to the May 29, 1856, Anti-Nebraska Convention gathered at this establishment and delivered speeches from the veranda. There they decried the repeal of the Missouri Compromise and the possibility of slavery expanding into heretofore-free northern territories.
