Lamon House


The Lamon House is a Greek Revival Cottage built in 1850 by Joseph and Melissa Beckwith Lamon. Joseph is the cousin of Ward Hill Lamon, Lincoln's law partner and bodyguard. It is believed to be the oldest frame house in the Danville Area.

Melissa is the daughter of Dan Beckwith, who Danville is named for. The home originally stood near downtown Danville on North Street, but was moved to its present location in Lincoln Park and was completely restored in the early 1980's. The house is open Sundays from 1:30 to 4:30 (May thru October) or by appointment.
