We could not go inside but got to read the informational plaques and get pictures. It is right across the street from the Old State Capitol. A definite must if you are a Lincoln buff.

The law office has been closed for awhile, but it is still worth going to visit. It is near the old state capitol and Lincoln square.

Currently closed for renovations, but it was a great spot for a photo with the kids! It is on an easy to reach corner across the street from the Old State Capitol.

Wonderful experience for young boys to see and experience about Honest Abe a man of many facets! His home was very true to the time period!

It is currently undergoing renovations and I'm sure when it's open again it will be an even more worthwhile visit. It gives an interesting glimpse into the 1800s life of Abraham Lincoln in Springfield. The place is a nice short visit, a little dark and...More

I have walked this site on previous visits. I am happy that renovations are being done and hope to see the results on my next visit in October. This is also the start of the ghost tour which goes on at 7:00pm.
