Macon County History Museum


The Prairie Years and Victorian Era in Central Illinois come to life in exhibits at the Macon County History Museum!

Imagine Abraham Lincoln, the 6'4" lawyer, ducking to avoid bumping his head on the entrance of Macon Country's first courthouse built in 1829, which was the only log courthouse where Lincoln practiced law. This and other replica period buildings, located in the Macon County History Museum, allow visitors to travel back to different historical periods of the county. The prairie village on the museum grounds is home to such replica historical buildings as the log court house where Abraham Lincoln practiced in the 1830s.
