Macon County History Museum Wayside

The Prairie Village at the Macon County History Museum has the only log courthouse in which Lincoln practiced law.  Records indicate he participated in 5 cases in the original log courthouse of Macon County during his early career as a lawyer.

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.
