Champaign’s Lincoln

Located in the heart of Champaign and near the spot where Lincoln spoke at the Goose Pond church and across the street from the Champaign County History Museum, this sign tells the story of West Urbana’s early days.

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.
