Metamora

Step back in time on the beautiful Metamora town square, surrounding the Metamora Courthouse. The Courthouse is still in use today, much as it was when Abraham Lincoln traveled there as an 8th Judicial Circuit attorney. Metamora is also the hometown of Adlai E. Stevenson, U.S. Vice President under Grover Cleveland. Both Stevenson and Lincoln practiced law in the Courthouse here. Both the Courthouse and the Stevenson House are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Today – the town square is the site of many local celebration including bank concerts, dances and Civil War-era reenactments.
