A view to the northeast from the Logan County Courthouse showing Lincoln's City Hall, Post Office, and I.O.O.F. Buildings. These are the major buildings on the east side and northeast corner of Lincoln's historic courthouse square. All of the properties in this view lie within the Lincoln Courthouse Square Historic District that was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1985. Lincoln's City Hall and Fire Department are located kitty-corner from the courthouse at the intersection of McLean and S. Broadway St. This brick two-story, Romanesque Revival Style building was built in 1886. To the south of city hall across Broadway St. is the United States Post Office. Completed in 1912, this neo-classical style building is typical in appearance with many of the post office buildings constructed with WPA labor in small towns during the Great Depression in the 1930s. In 1996, the post office was designated as the Edward Madigan Post Office Building in honor of the former Illinois congressman and U.S. Secretary of Agriculture under President George H.W. Bush. The third building shown in this photo was constructed in 1915 for the Independent Order of Odd Fellows (IOOF). An early 20th century commercial design, this four story brick building is now the home of the Lincoln Art Institute, created as a place for local artists to exhibit and share their work. Within the Lincoln Courthouse Square Historic District, City Hall and the U.S. Post Office buildings are significant properties, and the IOOF Building is a contributing property. Lincoln is the seat of Logan County, which is situated in central Illinois approximately 26 miles northeast of Springfield, the state capitol. The estimated population of Lincoln in 2018 was 13,685.View image on Flickr
