Lincoln-Herndon Law Office

Abraham Lincoln practiced law in the offices above Seth Tinsley's store from 1843 until 1852. It was an ideal location for a rising young law firm near the Capitol and Springfield's finest hotel of the day and just above the local post office and Federal Courtroom. Stephen Logan (1843-44) and William Herndon (1844-52) were his partners during this time. This is the only surviving structure in which Lincoln maintained working law offices.
