In a town that lives off the legacy of the Great Emancipator, this is the exhibit to see: a bank ledger with Lincoln's account in it.
In 1853 Lincoln deposited $310 in what was then the oldest bank in Illinois. While that bank has been swallowed several times in mergers and acquisitions, the Lincoln account ledger remains inviolate, sealed in an ornate bronze glass-topped case in the lobby. Trace Lincoln's deposits and withdrawals!
George Washington may have slept in hundreds of places, but Lincoln only banked here.
