Lincoln the Young Lawyer
This statue of Abraham Lincoln is not just another Lincoln statue. It was sculpted by Lorado Taft, born in Urbana in 1860. The statue was unveiled at the courthouse in 1927 and was relocated here, to Carle Park, in 1955. The statue is located across the street from the high school.
There is a small copy of this statue at the Lincoln Tomb in Springfield.
