Postville Courthouse State Historic Site

Imagine yourself arguing a point of law in this rugged looking, brown frame building – a reproduction of the building that served as the seat of Logan County government from 1840 – 1848. Reconstructed in 1953, the Postville Courthouse contains historical exhibits of the 8th Judicial Circuit, and a courtroom and offices furnished as they might have been when Lincoln worked here as a circuit lawyer.
