The only town to be named for Lincoln – before he became President, Lincoln has a rich connection with this city and Logan County. As a lawyer on the 8th Judicial Circuit, Lincoln argued many cases at Postville Courthouse, a state historic site. At Lincoln College, you’ll find the Lincoln Heritage Museum which houses a collection of rare Lincoln artifacts, treasures such as china, books and mourning clothing belonging to Mary Lincoln, as well as original correspondence from President Lincoln written during the Civil War.

The Logan County Courthouse, located on the charming downtown square, is surrounded by charming stores and restaurants for a step back to a simpler time in a quintessential Midwestern small town – which also sits on historic U.S. Route 66.
