We were only able to see the office from outside; apparently it is not open for tours. Still interesting to see the location in proximity to the other Lincoln sites.

We were very disappointed that the Law Offices were closed for renovation. We were told that they had been closed for at least 5 years but supposedly opening again next month.

Just across from the Old State Capitol on the pedestrian street. The sign is even smaller now but the statues are still there for some photo ops.

Don’t go out of your way to stop to see words painted on the side of a building. If you are in the area it’s cool to walk by and see it on your way to the old capital.

This law office where Lincoln used to work is just opposite the Old State Capitol. You'll recognize it by a monument in front, his family escorting him out and preparing to address the audience.
The office is famous also as a place where Mr. Lincoln wrote his inaugural speech for his presidency.
