The Washington County Courthouse houses the Lincoln Legacy Museum, which highlights the major parts of Abraham Lincoln’s story with special emphasis on his family background. The Courthouse also contains the marriage bond of Lincoln’s parents, Thomas and Nancy, who were married near Springfield in 1806. A statue of Lincoln was erected in 2009 across the street from the courthouse, interpreting Lincoln’s confusion about where- and perhaps whether- his parents were actually married.
