Outside of his hometown of Springfield, Lincoln probably spent more time in Bloomington than in any other Illinois city. It was here that he cultivated many of his close personal and political allies and legal associates. Perhaps one of his closest friends was Bloomington’s Judge David Davis. History has shown that Judge Davis played a pivotal role in both Lincoln’s successful legal career and his run for the presidency. Here, you’ll discover the stately David Davis Mansion. You’ll get a rare glimpse into the daily lives of this wealthy Victorian family as you explore its beautiful room. Meet the people and hear the stories of this city during Lincoln’s time when you visit the McLean County Museum of History.
