Lincoln Family Church

The First Presbyterian Church in downtown Springfield contains a pew the Lincoln family rented in a previous building which is no longer standing. The Lincolns became associated with the congregation in 1850 after the death of their young son Edward.

Abraham Lincoln never visited this church building, however, because it was constructed after he died. Mary Lincoln joined the church and her funeral was held here in 1882.
