Getting There From Here
The road beside this wayside is West Main Street, one of the main routes upon which Lincoln traveled during his trips on the Eighth Judicial Circuit. The wayside also recounts the story of how Lincoln took pity and saved a pig from a muddy pit during one of his journeys.
Looking for Lincoln wayside exhibits tell the stories of Lincoln’s life and times in Illinois. Each wayside exhibit tells a unique Lincoln story and a local story. Many of the waysides share little known stories about Lincoln and the individuals he interacted with. There are over 260 Looking for Lincoln waysides in the Abraham Lincoln National Heritage Area.
