(7-05) Lincoln Marker The Lincoln-Herndon Law Offices State Historic Site has been restored to appear as it may have looked from 1843 until about 1852, when Abraham Lincoln practiced law from rented offices on the building's third floor. Lincoln had three different law partners with whom he rented office space in buildings on or around the public square during the approximately 23 years that he practiced law in Springfield. The Lincoln-Herndon Law Offices State Historic Site, managed by the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency, is the only one of those structures still standing
