— Restored 1981 —
Here, in the 1840s attorneys of the old Eighth Judicial Circuit would gather. In the upper rooms Abraham Lincoln, David Davis, Asahel Gridley and others forged their ideals which fifteen years later were placed before the Nation.
The restoration of this building was made possible through the gift of the property by Herbert and Hannah Livingston and by the generous donations of citizens of this county.
Erected by The McLean County Historical Society.
