We could not enter the building as it is being renovated, The outside is well kept. There is a plaque on the building explaining this is where Lincoln worked.

Only thing there currently is a sign on the building showing it as a former Lincoln-Herndon Law Office and a little bit of info on a plaque. Definitely something you should go see but it will be a quick walk-by visit and take a couple pictures.

A good photo opportunity, but shame you couldn't go inside. Makes up part of Lincoln's history in and around Springfield.

It was helpful to see the display in the Library, since you can't really see anything here. The downtown area is well done showing where Lincoln lived and worked.

This would be a great place to demonstrate the non-political legal side of Lincoln. A chance for an additional glimpse into his life. The law office is close to the Old State Capital building but it's not much more than a quick photo opp at this point. Hopefully someone does something with it.

We were only able to see the office from outside; apparently it is not open for tours. Still interesting to see the location in proximity to the other Lincoln sites.

We were very disappointed that the Law Offices were closed for renovation. We were told that they had been closed for at least 5 years but supposedly opening again next month.

Just across from the Old State Capitol on the pedestrian street. The sign is even smaller now but the statues are still there for some photo ops.

Don’t go out of your way to stop to see words painted on the side of a building. If you are in the area it’s cool to walk by and see it on your way to the old capital.
